RE: CIVL Radio Campaign Focus Group
nike air jordan 6
As you may already know, CIVL Radio will be holding a referendum to increase student fees at the end of March. Our previous campaign and referendum in December was unsuccessful by only 66 out of 854 votes (a margin of 7%). We realize that our posters and advertising for the referendum is in need of improvement. With that in mind, we hope to improve our campaign strategy and hold a successful second referendum.

With an increased budget, CIVL Radio will be able to provide better services for students including:

– Hire more staff members

– Provide incentives for volunteers and students

– Host more events on campus and in the community

– Invest in new technology and maintain our current equipment

– Fund a new tower with range from Cloverdale to Hope

– Hold more contests and give away prizes

– Create a richer environment on campus and more experiences for students

We will be hosting an open campaign meeting on February 22th at 4:30 pm to generate support for our referendum and to hear any feedback and suggestions. We will meet at CIVL Radio and proceed to a meeting room.
