# 💼 Onboarding for Strategy
Welcome to UBC Launch Pad, and congratulations (and thank you!) for joining the strategy team!
# Slack Channels
Make sure you are added to:
#tm-strategy(opens new window): private team channel.
#ask-strategy(opens new window): this is where members are expected to direct questions at strategy.
See our Slack guide for more details.
# Rocket Team
Make sure you get added to the
strategy Rocket team by the co-presidents.
# GitHub Teams
Make sure you are a part of the GitHub team
@ubclaunchpad/strategy (opens new window), and check that you can access the private Strategy repository (opens new window) - this repository contains sponsorship resources and event/sponsorship tracking issues. Rocket should do this for you - check your email for an invitation! Please do not ask to be added directly without checking with
#ask-rocket if there is a problem.
Account credentials are generally tracked in the Exec repository (opens new window) - reach out to
#ask-leads (opens new window) if you need login details to anything, and they will help you get access.
Make sure that you are watching all relevant repositories so that you don't miss any updates! To learn more about setting up your GitHub notifications, check our GitHub guide.
# Google Drive
Make sure all strategy members are given "editor" access to the shared Launch Pad Strategy subfolder (opens new window), which is owned by the
firstname.lastname@example.org account. Rocket should do this for you - check your email for an invitation! Please do not ask to be added directly without checking with
#ask-rocket if there is a problem.
In general, assume pretty liberal with access to folders in Google Drive (since it is hard to keep track of access over time, especially for individual documents, and for ease of use we generally share entire folders with everyone).
Sensitive information (such as contact details for sponsors) should be tracked in one of our private GitHub repositories and distributed as required (for example, by linking to specific issues from Drive documents).
Similarly, do not add credentials (usernames, passwords) in Google Drive. Instead, get them added to the private Exec repository (opens new window) and provide the credentials to those who need it as required.
# Email and Accounts
All Strategy members will be given access to the
email@example.com Gmail account to help in correspondance with partners and sponsors. Learn more about Launch Pad email in the email documentation.
To gain access to various social media accounts, see the social media documentation.
We use GitHub and Slack for pretty much everything - make sure you are intimately familiar with both, regardless of your role, by reading our handcrafted guides:
# Recurring Processes
The Strategy team is responsible for driving efforts on our recurring processes with the Leadership team.
# Acquiring Sponsorships
- Create a Sponsorship tracking issue on GitHub (opens new window)
- Assign to a team member
- Append all email communication in the issue for future reference
- Use email templates under
strategyrepository on GitHub (opens new window)
- Refer to handbook Manifesto when creating/adjusting outreach content for each contact
- Create an invoice using this template (opens new window) and save the invoice under the invoice folder (opens new window) of that respective year
- Send the invoice to the sponsor and wait for confirmation from ECE
- Record revenue on the Income and Expense spreadsheet under the Finance folder (opens new window)
# Planing and Hosting Events
Create an Event tracking issue (opens new window) in the strategy repository - all the things you need to do are included!
You can also refer to the Guide for Meeting with clubs (opens new window) for collaborative event planning.
# Social Media
Social media management workflows are documented in the social media guide.
Reimbursement requests should be filed in the Leads repository using the reimbursement template (opens new window), which also contains follow-up instructions.
