Marketing Tools

Project Timelines

The marketing and communications staff is available to consult with you on your project and/or provide materials and public relations.  Due to the process of creating, approving and printing marketing materials, it is important to make requests with the appropriate advanced notice.  Due to the volume of projects, we need to prioritize based upon submission date.

Please note: Marketing/PR requests require a two week turn-around minimum. Printing requests require a 4-5 day turn-around. If you require both Marketing/PR and printing, please factor in both turn-around times.
