We need to advertise our club. There are three main sources of new members: Celebration of Mines, CS classes, and referrals.
Celebration of Mines¶
Make sure that you sign up for a table with power at Celebration of Mines. Things to have at the table include:
- Stickers for ACM, Firefox, Mozilla, OSSN
- Cool computers (in the past we have computers from Jack Rosenthal’s collection, they are a great draw)
- Make sure that Tracy includes a question (or two) on the CSCI 101 scavenger hunt to encourage students to come to our booth at Celebration.
The CS Department as a whole is very supportive of ACM. We should attempt to get one of the officers to present about ACM at every section of 101, 261, 262, 274, 303, and 306. Advertising at the upper level classes is not nearly as useful since by then, most people know about ACM anyway.
At these presentations, explain what ACM is, what we do, how it’s awesome, and how to get involved. Ideally, we do this on week 1 so we can advertise our first big tech talk and tell people to come to our booth at Celebration of Mines.
This is one of our best sources of new members. People who are enthusiastic about ACM will tell their friends to come.
We should encourage people to bring friends.
