    We are changing things up a bit for the Outreach Activities Team (OAT), and have decided to open up applications in case anyone else is interested in helping with our upcoming event. :D Going forward (if it works out this time!) we're going to hire for specific events, with terms lasting the duration of the event. For example, our upcoming event will be Shaoman. We are opening up applications now, with the intent to hire as applications come in. Planning will be starting in the near future. Roughly a week after Shaoman is over (or whenever everything is wrapped up), the OAT will be thanked and sent on their merry way until it's time to hire for Beltine.

    Additional information:
    • this year, Shaoman is going to be an extended event, ergo, freeweeks
    • we are going to be trying something new involving teams
    • we hope you have fun :)
    To apply, read on for the position-specific information and responsiblities.

    Department:
    Department of Community Outreach
    Position Level: Staff
    Reports To: @Siera al'Cere, Outreach Activities Coordinator
    Duration: Shaoman Event (planning, implementation, wrap-up)
    Merit Eligibility: Staff Merit

    • Actively participate in the planning, preparation and execution of our annual freeweeks as well as other events. This can include coming up with ideas for activities, creating graphics, writing, etc.
    • Assist in running chats for events
    Expectations:
    • Must be able to follow through with whatever tasks you volunteer for, or are assigned to do, in a timely manner.
    Time Commitment:

    Qualifications:

    • Experience and skill with graphics, creative writing, leadership or event planning is a plus, but not an absolute necessity

    Often things created with Tower emails won’t allow people without Tower emails to access. Maybe that’s it?

    That was the issue, and it's now fixed. Apologies! It's a default thing, and I never remember to edit it until it messes up... :look /fail

    Will we still be planning themes/activities as membership groups, or does this replace that feature? As much as I love group pride, it can be difficult to compete in some areas when you're a smaller active group going up against larger ones.

    Nope, if activities are done, they will be done with the group you'll be sorted into rather than by membership group :)
