Marketing/Communication Community Partner Networking Event
A networking event for faculty in the fields of marketing, communication, information technology, graphic design, and arts technology and community organizations specifically with marketing/communications needs will be held on Friday, November 30 from 1pm - 2:30pm at the ISU Alumni Center. This event is designed to create space for faculty and community organizations with specific marketing/communication needs to talk about potential partnerships. Organizations planning to attend include: BCAI School of Arts, St. John’s Lutheran Church, Habitat ReStore, Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts/Creativity Center, MarcFirst, Prairie Aviation Museum, and St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry. The “speed dating” style event will involve round tables where faculty can sit and talk with one or two organizations at a time to share information/needs of their course. Community organizations will share information about their work and the specific marketing/communication needs. Faculty can move around as they like to talk to several different organizations leaving the event with an idea of which community needs are most relevant to their courses and a plan to contact the organization later to further develop a relationship. Faculty planning to participate should email Harriett Steinbach firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. Faculty outside of the aforementioned disciplines are welcome to attend.
