Tips


Event Photography

Assign a photographer to take photos at the event. Take pictures of a single person or of two or three people talking or looking at the camera. Try to take some pictures without alcohol visible in the shot.

Post the best pictures on your website. High quality photos may also be published in the BerkeleyHaas magazine or on the school's Facebook Page. Send your very best photos to alumni@haas.berkeley.edu for consideration. The resolution should be 300 dpi; the file should take about one megabyte of space; and the dimensions should be at least 3 x 3. Review the photography guidelines for suggestions on taking great photos that can be used in the BerkeleyHaas magazine.

Surveys

Consider sending a post-event survey. This is a great way to thank people for coming, recruit an alumnus/a for a specific board role, or announce your next event. Share the survey results with guest speakers, partner organizations, or sponsors. Above all, use the information to plan your next event. Contact alumni@haas.berkeley.edu for the login details and to see sample surveys.

Wheelchair Access

Hold events at locations that are wheelchair accessible. If this is not possible, as may be the case with ski trips, hikes, and bike rides, make this known in the promotion of your event.

Raffles

Collect business cards at the registration table, conduct a raffle at the conclusion of the event, and award a prize. After the event, scan and email those business cards to alumni@haas.berkeley.edu. This will assure any new information you have collected is updated in the @cal alumni directory.

Video Recording

If an event is to be videotaped for posting on the chapter's website, the event lead must ensure the speaker has filled out and signed the media release form in advance of the event.
