(1) Hello, Promotions team. My name is Tala Wong, I'm the Promotions
VP for LitSoc. Please add my YM ID: soundtrackd. My contact
number is 09277036158. My current favorite game is Diablo 2: Lord of
Destruction, and yes, I am excited about Diablo 3.


(2) There are around 15 of us, and more committee members means more
schedules to juggle. So as much as possible, many of our Promotions
meetings will be conducted online, via the joy that is YM
conferencing. I will specify a time/date at least two days in advance;
RSVP via YM/text.

Should we have a real-life meeting (and where you all find out I'm bad
with names and faces), I will also specify a date, venue, and time a
week before the actual meeting.

(3) Man is a visual creature, so major Promotions projects right now
involve a lot of designing. The biggest thing we have on our plate is
LitSoc merchandise (T-shirts, canvas bags, buttons, stickers, and
caps), long-awaited and long-delayed. This is our only independent
project, and one whose products last long after org events have
passed, so I'd like to see this through.

(3a) As early as now, I need design ideas for T-shirts, canvas bags,
buttons, stickers, and caps, so we can have them made before
my term ends the De la Costa booksale next month, and
the planned bookfair in December.

They do not need to be elaborate pieces of art. The focus of our org
is literature/reading, so remember that less is more. Use words to
create a message. The LitSoc logo can be located at:
http://img501.imageshack.us/img501/1998/litsoclogond0.png and the
org's motto this year is 'Keep reading.'

If you wish to submit designs for any of the aforementioned
merchandise, please e-mail submissions to
patricia.ysabel.wong@gmail.com, at the highest resolution

(3b) Does anyone know of a place that prints shirts/caps/bags,
buttons, and stickers on the cheap? Please give me store names,
contact numbers, locations.

(4) Apart from the Yahoo groups, there is also a LitSoc LJ community
(http://keepreading.livejournal.com) and a Multiply account
(http://litsoc.multiply.com). Please add those up if you have LJ or
Multiply accounts.

All org promotional videos can be found at:

(5) Lastly, if you have an idea for promotions (How can we market the
org?/ How can we bring more notoriety...er, attention, to the org?),
feel free to IM or text me.

Huge wall of text, I know. But all important. And numbered!

Hello, friends.

This is Angela, Formations VP. I had originally intented for us to have the first Formations Session on Friday, July 18th, 2008 (yes, I already have a topic. Yes, I already did the research). But seeing that I am not fully acquainted with everyone who wants to join the Formations Committee, I am reluctant to push-thru on the aforementioned date.

So for those who will be joining the Formations Committee, let me brief you on what to expect. We will be doing substantial research on certain topics (by substantial I don't mean thesis level... unless you want to). Also, I am not too demanding when it comes to meetings because I understand that we may have different schedules and other things to tie up our time. However, we will have at least one short meeting before any Formations Session. This is to secure order and cohesion in our researches. But on a regular basis, I will settle for YM conferences. Tasks will be divided among us. And your subjective, relevant insights will be appreciated.

Lastly, to those part of the Formations Committee, please add my YM ID and kindly introduce yourself as you do: angelamendoza13.

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

LitSoc's first GA will be held on JULY 9, 2008 (That's a Wednesday, kids), at CTC 206.
Get to know your ExeCom (family!), learn LitSoc's activities for the year, join a committee (HR, Promotions, Marketing, and Formations), play games, get some fresh Homer-cooked food (just like your big fat Greek mama made!).

Bring protective headgear and eyewear. Seriously.

And everyone who hasn't paid for the application fee, this is just a reminder to please do it at the GA.
