A schedule of meetings will be determined by the advisor and Executive Director of Homecoming and will be distributed to the board. However, the board can expect to meet on a bi-weekly basis leading up to fall and weekly during the fall semester through the months of February-October (or depending on which month UA Homecoming falls) for the purpose of execution and implementation of planning, marketing and execution strategies for the fall Homecoming activities. Additional meetings may be scheduled to ensure that final plans for Homecoming are progressing at a reasonable pace to the established timeline for that specific year. Meetings to ensure the implementation of established Homecoming plans and to ensure awareness are to be held via a Logistics Meeting & Campus Partner Meeting coordinated by UA Alumni Affairs about a month out from festivities. The Board should have representation at this meeting. Subsequent meetings should be set to adequately monitor the preparations for the planned activities and provide the necessary feedback on coordination for a successful Homecoming. A follow-up meeting should be held shortly after Homecoming to assess the success of activities. The intent shall be to identify both successes and problems with the view toward improving future programs.
Minutes of every meeting are kept by the student Director of Communications.
