1 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | Leeds University Union. Give It A Go #LUUGIAG Charlie Gower-Smith May 2014

2 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | What is Give it a Go? Sample societies before joining No obligation to buy membership Try something new Meet new people

3 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | Why should I run one? Up to £320 incentive funding for societies over 12 months old Increased memberships. e.g. Backstage Society had 45 people attend their session in Autumn After, 25 people joined the society. Charge for the session – make more money

4 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | What should I do? Run a usual meeting/session History Society Dodgeball Mathematics Society Bowling Make sure that it is both logistically and financially viable

5 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | Okay – so how do I apply? Tuesday 6 th May – Friday 16 th May

6 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 9 Tips for running a GIAG...So you’ve received a confirmation Everything is booked You have an itinerary of what to do. Your committee members have been allocated tasks and you have all your materials ready. How do you make sure that your session is successful!?

7 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 1. Hand in your signup sheet Collect a signup sheet from the LUU Helpdesk. Signup sheet must be submitted to the Activities Reception within 10 days of the session.

8 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 2. Organise! Obvious? Well....obviously not! “It was badly organised and... the society lacked communication ” “ It looked like they were really lost and didn't know what to do” “There were too many people and a lot of people were standing at the back...we couldn’t hear what was going on....” “The timing was wrong as in the booklet it said 6.30 pm start. We got there at 6:25 and it had already started... There wasn’t enough equipment for everyone... “Everyone was complaining about the fact that they had to wait a long time.” “We had to wait for them to run back to the Union and get the keys!” “it looked like they‘d decided what to do 10 minutes before it started” “Lack of structure, lack of flow, lack of organisation and lack of initiative”

9 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 3. Advertise!

10 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 4. Subsidise! Could people buy tickets cheaper themselves? Could people get their transport cheaper themselves? Do them a deal! Is it cheaper for the student to do the activity themselves? They say there is an exception to every rule......but everyone loves a bargain. No exception.

11 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 5. Remember...ise! HAND IN YOUR SIGN UP SHEET! No sheet = no money. No exceptions

12 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 6. Talk to me! Making changes? Need to cancel? Last minute inspiration? Let me know!!

13 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 7. Talk to them! People come to learn about your society – tell them about it! Be friendly! “I went because I wanted to learn about the society before I joined, but they didn’t talk to me. I didn’t feel welcome....I don’t think I will join after all.”

14 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 8. Don’t overcrowd

15 Website: | Facebook ‘Leeds University Union’ | 9. Run a social afterwards If your event is not a social, why not run one afterwards? Remember that it should be suitable for everyone
