c5. Use of Logo
Sean Donovan advised that we have approval to use the logo for promotional events and correspondence. There are restrictions on the use of the logo with any other corporate or sponsorship logo's. A file has been provided by WYD of the official logo.
c6. Fundraising
Sean Donovan advised that the fundraising code has been obtained. However, much of the merchandise at the WYD shop is not available when using this code. A printout of available fundraising items was provided by Brother John. The team selected items to be purchased (hopefully to be delivered in time for the Fete) by Brother John.
c7. T-Shirts
Sean Donovan advised that no discount is available on the WYD shirts selected at the previous meeting. It will therefore be cheaper to have our own shirts made. Sean will organise these. If anyone knows a local Catholic supplier please let Sean know, otherwise he will use his usual supplier in Botany.
c8. Draft promotional letters
A list of local groups and media for promotion was provided by Greg Simoni. It was suggested that Brother John may be able to provide a longer list of local Christian and Catholic contacts.
Greg also provided sample media releases. Some improvements were suggested and passed on to Greg.
4. The full meeting reconvened with closing comments and prayer.
Next Meeting Date: Sunday 23rd September at 6pm
