The UMD Communicators Council is once again conducting
a Communication Audit. They are assembling UMD's printed promotional materials,
advertising and web pages for review. They want to include department
and collegiate unit newsletters and materials in this process. They are
also looking for phrases that identify UMD. It is important for UMD to
continually review the image it portrays to the outside community. All
departments are asked to: 1) submit your materials and suggestions and
2) come to the review session.
To participate, bring copies of department newsletters,
posters, flyers, brochures, web pages, and other printed materials between
2:30 and 4:30 pm on Thursday, October 25, to 351 Kirby. If you are unable
to bring your materials that day, you can drop them off in 315 Darland
Administration Building. The materials will be available for review in
the Kirby Ballroom between 11 am and 3 pm on Friday, October 26. A reception
will be held in conjunction with the review at 1:30 pm. The group is inviting
all members of the UMD campus and community representatives (alumni and
advertising professionals) to tell us what works and what areas need attention.
Please contact Cheryl Reitan at email@example.com, 726 8996, with the
number of pieces for the audit and who will attend the reception.
