  7. 7. Volunteer Work The Arthritis Society. In working with the Arthritis society, I operated as a member of a three-person marketing team tasked with developing, planning and co-coordinating marketing efforts for the annual Walk to Fight Arthritis event. Specific tasks included assisting with the development and creating of the TAS brand book and marketing communication plan. I was also responsible for identifying target markets and locations throughout the GTA to promote the event, as well as present the final marketing strategy to the TAS event committee, helping to ensure fluidity with the national office marketing department. Additionally, I was also tasked with the creation, design and maintenance of the Arthritis Society’s social media page for the walk, which is now being used as a model at the national level.

The objective was to generate high turn out to sign a mass petition, as well as generate participation in a “paddle-out” demonstration. For More: www.surfrider.org.au The Result?....
