Facilitator recruitment should start approximately 2-3 months before the large event.
- Going through point of contacts at the fire department, EMS or school of nursing works well.
- Since communicating with potentially 100+ volunteers individually is difficult it is suggested to set up an event in Eventbrite.com titled: CITY – Project Heart Start 2012 – Facilitator Registration. See sample at http://abq2012.eventbrite.com. This will allow you to see how recruiting is going and how many more you need at any given time, let’s you communicate easily with them and provides you with a list and Excel spreadsheet of all your facilitators with e-mail addresses. If you need help setting this up please contact: PHS Coordinator: Dorothee Hutchinson: 505-843-2814 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Facilitator t-shirts are a nice touch for a large event and will help to identify them to the participants. You may contact Daddy Dave’s Designs at 505-501-1911 or at email@example.com. He printed all t-shirts for the 2012 June event, has the artwork and is very reasonable.
