[Always check the The Latest Information on District Incentives]

#OpenNight Public Relations are key to a great open night. An open night (or Open House or Guest Night) highlights and engages an entire club and helps it grow. Open nights can have refreshments, decorations and a headliner speaker. They are an all-round fun night.

To claim: simply send your Open Night guest list, highlight those that joined, and tell me about the PR channel you used. Daniel Sandars, District 71 PR Manager

For Example: campus-based Cranfield Speakers (Division H) had a stall at two freshers fairs, did poster and leaflet drops around campus, created an Open Night event on Meetup and Facebook and gave additional social media publicity on Twitter and Instagram. They had 133 new enquiries of which 80 attended the open night and ten had joined within two months

Support: The District 71 Website has a page full of tips and ideas. http://d71toastmasters.org/open-night/
