Create layouts for announcements, events and updates. The group will receive emails with information to be put into a simple but appealing graphic format like a poster. Whoever is available first would respond to produce something like a one page flier. Send it back to the organizer in PDF format for distribution online, in emails, or printed fliers/posters. This happens on average once a week. Desired response varies, but aiming to be completed within one day.
