  • Awareness of upcoming events applicable to the space and related proposals to the Management Committee
  • Any other tasks assigned by the Management Committee

The group will be loosely co-ordinated by the subcommittee chair. Individual events will be co-ordinated by a designated Project Lead or another method determined by the subcommittee.


The Promotions Subcommittee chair and the Management Committee have the ability to add or remove members of the subcommittee.

Budgetary Requirements and Space Usage

The Promotions Subcommittee may request funds from the Management, Committee. If approved the subcommittee may designate expense authority within the subcommittee subject to approval by the Treasurer.

The Management Committee authorises the subcommittee to waive tool usage fees when working on projects that are inline with the responsibilities of the subcommittee.

The subcommittee may requisition space within The Artifactory provided that any subcommittee materials do not interfere with scheduled events or the activites of Artifactory Members. This requisition must be upheld at the next meeting of the Management Committee in order to continue. It is the responsibility of the subcommittee chair to notify the Secretary that a requisition has taken place.

Tools and Procedures for Communication

The subcommittee will determine their own communication procedures.

Decisions made by the subcommittee

A determination made by the subcommittee is to be made by a simple majority of subcommittee members.

This section may be modified by the subcommittee using the existing process for subcommittee determinations.
