Assessing community relations

posted in: ET Update | 0

ET UpdateHow to increase community awareness of Chemeketa programs and services was one of the discussion topics at Executive Team’s November 25th meeting. It’s one thing for future students and their families to become aware of what we offer, but what about community and business leaders? How can we increase their awareness of our value?

We discussed the nature of our partnerships and connections with the community and what else could be done from restoring mass distribution of the class schedule, to paying for advertorials, to establishing a speaker’s bureau. We landed on a strategy to increase events and activities that would attract more community members to our locations so they can enjoy positive and memorable Chemeketa experiences. Andrew Bone and Greg Harris will explore the possibilities and develop a plan to implement.
