  • Schedule an agency speaker or tour, and/or a company volunteer project

What takes place during the campaign?

  • Present campaign materials at employee meetings
  • Schedules special events and games for staff
  • Follow up with employees unable to attend
  • Update employees with campaign information

The campaign is over, now what?
