Club and Departmental Student Union Event Planning
There are many ways for clubs to advertise at SFU, including the following:
Add your event to the calendar on sfss.ca!
Located in the bustling south concourse of the AQ, clubs’ tables are a great way to promote your club to the SFU community. You can make a table reservation at the GO. Because space is limited and clubs are abundant, you can only have a table for a maximum of 5 days at time. 4 of the 7 clubs’ tables have a poster board behind them, which can be used by the renter to display club information for the duration of their reservation.
There are poster boards available all over campus to advertise events - the problem is finding them all!
Here's a poster board map indicating all the SFSS boards and what day of the week they are cleared. Please post only one poster per board and do your best to respect other posters.
Also, when printing posters, please consider using the SFSS Copy Centre as they are able to offer clubs a minimum 25% discount!
If you would like to post in the Convocation Mall, please come to the GO with a couple of posters for us to stamp and put up on the relevant boards. These posters should remain up until the event is over.
Booking banner spaces & display boards
There are a total of 8 8-foot banner spaces/cases available in the ASB, Convocation Mall, and the Transport Corridor. You can book one space at the SFSS General Office for a maximum of 2 weeks at a time.
Eye in the Sky
Notices can be placed on the TVs around campus. These TVs, called “eye in the sky”, will continually display your message for a set period of time (normally up to 5 days). To book an ad, come into the GO and request an “eye in the sky” booking form. These must be completed at least 24 hours before you want your message displayed.
Campus Road FacMan Board
The large sign on University Way leading up to campus can be booked through the SFSS General Office. Come into the GO at least 5 working days before your event and fill out a “FacMan Sign Request” to reserve the board. There is a cost of around $60.00 for using the sign.
Club e-mail bulletin
Every Wednesday the GO sends a “Club Bulletin” to firstname.lastname@example.org to notify club executives about important club administration information (i.e. Clubs’ Days sign-up, etc.) and to provide a venue for clubs to promote their events to the club list. The mailing list email@example.com consists of email addresses designated by clubs in their club registration package under “for General Office” use. To avoid extensive spamming, we ask that clubs provide an email that only reaches executives members. If you would like to post an event on the Club Bulletin, please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
