Marketing and Events Committee
As the ONLY working FHP Committee, the Marketing and Events committee has been delegated with promoting downtown in as many venues as possible.
The Marketing side of this committee has been charged with the branding and marketing of Forward High Point thru such sources as Website and Social Media presences as well as tasked with marketing what a downtown is and how to strengthen its central core by determining what the public perception of downtown is and how it can become a vibrant live, work, and play community. In addition, this committee as begun work on a downtown interactive business guide (the end results of which you will eventually see here within this website).
The Events side of this committee has been charged with determining what downtown events will be promoted, sponsored, designed, and implemented by Forward High Point. This committee will also review, on a regular basis, all events placed on our Event Calendar and make recommendations as to how this communication source can be grown and expanded via our website.
As more downtown projects and events arrive on the horizon, look to this committee to expand its assistance with other downtown groups in marketing downtown as a fun destination to visit and to play.
This committee meets on a quarterly basis, with the next scheduled meeting to take place on Wednesday, September 18th at 4:00 PM. If interested in volunteering on this committee, please complete the from at the bottom of this page.
