Authors


1. Introduction

This document describes the responsibilities of the Publicity Officer of the Linux Users' Group of Davis. (http://www.lugod.org/).

It also has information that is relevant to the Publicity Officer. Namely, information about other user groups, and contact information for places to advertise events.


2. Responsibilities

The Publicity Officer serves as a contact between LUGOD and the public.

Before each meeting, the Publicity Officer should visit the website of all the user groups around us, and note the date, location and topic of their next meetings. The Publicity Officer will then present this information during the meeting.

The Publicity Officer is also responsible for keeping this HOWTO document up to date.

Lastly, anything that LUGOD wants to advertise (meetings, events, etc.) will go through the Publicity Officer.
