First, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Second, I’d like to add to Bob’s comments, to request that flyers always
include complete information that doesn’t assume local knowledge. In a
addition to the TOWN, a complete street address (with STATE and ZIPCODE) is
helpful for us out-of-towners. Including a PHONE NUMBER (with AREA CODE) and a
complete URL for more information is beneficial as well.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, hardcopy flyers are still distributed and used
as needed, but most of our membership and associates take advantage of our
electronic publications (“epubs”) web page, which doubles as an online flyers
table (see a sample at http://bacds.org/current-mailings). In addition to
the visual component, being able to link back to event or organization web or
facebook pages seems to be helpful.
This is rather easy to set up if anyone’s looking for something similar for
On a separate note - I’ve had a back-burner project in mind to create an online
repository of flyers to which folks could upload .pdf submissions, and if
enough folks are interested and/or have suggestions of what would be helpful, I
might move it to a forward burner. 😊 I had been think in term of making it
searchable by region, organization, dance genre, date/time, lead organziers or
staff, event type, text on the flyer itself, or other things that come to mind.
If this is of interest for your group, please contact me off-list.
Thanx, Ric Goldman

Subject: [Organizers] Flyers
At the Rochester NY monthly Contra Planning meeting, I took the action item to
post here the following requests:
1) Please make sure to include the TOWN where your event is happening,
prominently listed on any flyers
2) Our flyer table is getting very, very busy...can people consider 1/2 page
We purge flyers weekly (I use the scrap, if I can, otherwise recycle it.)
How do others manage the growing tide of paper?
