What is a creative name for the event? Try to avoid ones like open house and membership drive.
Use this search list to plan for a day free of other big events.
Some possibilities are:
Send announcements to our members and friends for presenters.
Greeters should have assigned shifts to meet and greet people as they show up. They need a script with bullet points to introduce them to EMS and answer questions.
They should try to encourage membership sign-ups.
Shop cleanup two days before, and after the event.
