Recruiting zoom call in/fall in

Incoming transmission from the Recruitment center: The Finest wants you!
Be it Cobra or Joe, we’d like to connect with you! Members of multiple Garrisons will be at the ready to connect with you!

We’re trying something NEW: Zoom virtual meet-up / Q&A / introduction and Help!

Our first of a series we’ll be trying out in 2021 of opening up a direct connection with people interested in the Finest will be on Saturday, February 6th at 4pm Eastern Standard Time.

Whether you’re looking for more information on costumes, what we do, where we do it or why we do it, we’ll be online live to answer any questions you have.

You’ll likely need to download zoom as an app on your computer or mobile but there are also phone numbers that you can call in.

Here’s the link!

This will be such a great opportunity to meet new recruits! :us::+1:


This really is a great idea. I’m truly looking forward to the results.


Here’s hoping!
This may take a few repeat sessions to get the ball rolling. I’m also open to suggestions on which watering holes others think I should be dropping a line in. Our recruitment page is fairly stagnant so I don’t know if that best place to return to if we hope to get a nibble.



The new stuff? Tiktok snapchat Twitter Instagram linked in

You could ask Garrison COs to post about it on their respective public garrison pages

Definitely not using Linkedin. That’s a resource for professional contacts, not hobbies.

The finest has a Twitter account, perhaps I can get Jonny k to help there.

Snapchat and tiktok: we’d need to approach this differently since both seem to be based on time base media (I also feel like I’d be trolling a mall food court trying to pick up middle school children. )

I would just expect this, part of the reason I’m asking about garrison/unit recruiting officers

Was just a thought… I dont use any of those so I got no clue how they work.

Instagram and Twitter are best “other” options. The other social media platforms don’t really work for this. We don’t have an official Finest IG acct though.

Is it going to be open forum or is there a designated speaker going over specific topics?


Great question: I’ve been preparing a general overview presentation of the Finest I also have a more specific break down presentation of how the process of costume evaluation is done to help broker less rejection notices.
After those two areas are done (probably no more the 10-15 min) it’s open to questions and answers/meet and greet


would Twitch be a good platform for a Q&A?
I know it’s mainly for gamers, but I do follow a local Geek/SW show.

I’d definitely reccomend you take the lead for a dedicated Q&A after the presentation, or use someone to moderate for you. Have people raise their hands and chat and then unmute for the question on their turn, and then have yourself or have someone helping reply. It will go a long way to preventing someone from getting talked over.

The meet and greet kind of stuff could be much more informal, but depending on how many people there still may be a need to keep an eye out so it’s enjoyable.


Will do, boss!!!

@Kev011 remind me to make you co-host (once on), so you have control over muting/unmuting and other hosting duties.
