Objectives 2016

Our upcoming year runs from may 2016-june 2017

  • Identify a new chair for the Special Events Committee when current chair (Brenda Lee) steps down in January 2017.
  • Continue to run events that foster community and represent many demographics in OOS
  • Increase our social media and engage the community in our events through our face book page.
  • Finish the final touches on our SEC package that will outline how to run an event, timelines, policies etc., and have a hard copy to hand out to new members as well as an online copy available for any one who wishes to access it.
  • Recruit new members to help expand our events and to ensure that our current members are supported in the running of events.
  • Engage with OSCA Staff on how to best manage events and ensure that staff and committee members are supported in the running of events.
  • This year our focus is heavy on managing our timing when running events. We need to ensure that staff and committee members have enough time to adequately plan events while also managing other tasks. Our SEC package will have a clear timeline and we hope that this makes our events run more smoothly for all involved.
