Campaign Booklet- TCDSU

A campaign or event should have a clear progression. Here is a sample list of where you should be in a project at various times prior to the event.

6 weeks before:
The event should be identified and relevant partners (SU, societies) should be briefed on the idea. A project lead should be identified and a meeting of those involved should be booked. Speakers should be contacted (ideally well before this, but definitely by now).
4 weeks before:
The theme and content of the campaign/event should have been decided.
Media- social media, posters etc- should have been designed.
Everyone should be briefed on the exact nature of the event.

3 weeks before-
Facebook/email promotion should begin.

2 weeks before-
All stakeholders should meet to discuss what is and is not working with the campaign- do not be afraid to scrap/change what is not working.
Promotion should be ramped up and event forms/bookings should be confirmed by now.
Everyone should know what is happening- very important.
Get the SU to liaise with College to advertise it via official channels.

1 week-
The SU weekly email should have full details and the Facebook page of the campaign/event should be identified.

3 days before-
Final preparations should be made.
Good luck!
