Booster our “club spirit” Committee

Keep SSC Bulletin Boards and Display Case updated with new things.  Be involved in Summer spirit week and other events.  Encourage and boost club morale, for example, help with Regional exhibitions and parties, create posters or send off items.  Generate and carry out ideas involved in improving club cohesiveness.

Event Committee

Coordinate functions put on by the SSC, designate volunteers to do various jobs or do them yourself if you prefer.  Organize around a theme, decorate the area for a function (i.e.Halloween Skate, Regionals Exhibition and Send off, Cast parties, Holiday Gala).  Clean up.

Communications Committee (Website, Facebook, Twitter)--

SSC would like our website to be a communication hub for the club and the public. 

Duties would be to maintain and update website and blog as well as Club Facebook accounts.  Start a twitter account if the board deems it necessary.

The website builder is on Squarespace which has Wysisyg or HTML.  Updating would be more efficent on a PC, but can be done on a Mac (not ideal depending on who you talk to).  Time required as much a few times a week during competitive season, shows, or around club events, however long it takes you to upload photos and create pages.  Can be done from home.  Requires ability to write and edit blog entries, but you will be posting things given to you in final form as well.  Some knowledge of websites is ideal, but can be learned.  Clear communication with others is imperative and ability to post in a timely manner essential.  Feel free to email with questions.
