promoting your workshop
When we have your workshop scheduled, we will send you an “agreement form” that you will need to fill out and return to us as quickly as possible. Information that you give us on this form will be used to create the customized brochure for your training event. This brochure will include a brief summary of information about the workshop itself, information about the workshop leader and local information (date, location, time, how to register, etc.). These brochures will help you promote the training event to your teachers, leaders and members, and they can also be used to invite people from other churches, if you choose to do so. In addition, we will now also prepare several posters (8-1/2” x 11” and/or 11” x 17”) for you to display throughout your church and community to promote your workshop event. In addition, we will mail a small packet of the promotional brochures to up to 15 churches in your area, if you request. (You must supply us with the mailing information for each church that you want us to send brochures to.)
Once you get the customized brochures and posters, continue to do all that you can to promote your workshop event. Have announcements placed in your weekly church bulletin, put information on your church website, encourage your members to share an invitation with their friends, and don’t forget, one-to-one personal contacts are always the best form of promotion. One week before your workshop, you will need to contact the P.S.S.S.A. office to let us know how many participants you are expecting for your workshop. We will need to know this number so that we can prepare worksheets and other materials for the event.
NOTE: If you cancel your scheduled workshop for any reason other than bad weather, you will be charged a $50.00 cancellation fee to cover the costs that have already been involved in preparing for and promoting your workshop.
