A volunteer on the Discover Hartford planning committee asks and suggests:
"How do we get the board more engaged? Give each board member a goal of securing 20 registrations. Hard to measure, but could assume 10% of the folks they contact register. If they contact 200 people each, that would count. FB invites. Email distribution. Send out info to clubs they are involved with. We've had goals like this for past tours and events."
Engaging your social networks has more impact than you may think! We've seen an uptick in tour registrations after MaryEllen's emails to her personal contacts.
As of late day on August 29, we have 76 registrants for this year's tour. Last year we had 97 at the end of August, with a total of 355 registrants by tour day, September 29. This year's tour is a week earlier, so please start spreading the word--early and often! Thanks!
