Recruitment of Local Attendees



Describe the availability of potential local attendees (withi
n a 45 minute drive). This will reduce costs
by reducing lodging needs.

What

other institutions from which you can recruit

are nearby
?


There are several community colleges, 4 year colleges, and high schools within driving distance
of Wayne State College f
rom which we can recruit attendees. Wayne is located in the
northeastern part of Nebraska within driving distance of some parts of Iowa and South Dakota.





What advertising/marketing will you do to recruit attendees, local or otherwise?


Advertising will
include making a flyer to send to all institutions both secondary and
higher education in Nebraska.

E
-
mails with information about the workshop will be sent to listservs for educators.

Any additional advertising/marketing as deemed
financially

acceptable
by the dean

and
VPs.
