Leadership Team November 2020

Leadership team meeting.

Miss this event? Here's a recap:

Meeting started at 6:40. 8 people in attendance.

Oktoberfest photo contest review

  • Could use more variety in types of judges. Two of them were portrait photographers this time.
  • Judging procedure needs to be better defined.
  • Need to start earlier than 6, especially once prints are back in. Need at least 5 hours.
  • Need to start work on the whole contest sooner to ensure all the materials have the kinks worked out and the advertising is out sooner. Consider starting advertising on August 1.
  • Too many entries were allowed per person (fewer than 12).
  • Need to work on prizes. Certificate or plaque for the top winners. Possibly give LACC membership to student winners.
  • Notify teachers in the spring and find out how best to contact them in the fall.
