The following are the Education Committee Objectives for this year as approved by the Board of Directors during the last regular board meeting.
1. To sponsor continuing education events for beginner, intermediate and advanced geocachers in order to enhance individual and group safety, awareness, and enjoyment of geocaching in general and geocaching in Alaska specifically.
2. To provide free educational materials related to geocaching on the GeocacheAlaska! website and links to other resources.
3. To post notices of other regional geocaching educational opportunities on the GeocacheAlaska! website.
4. To create a generic set of standardized PowerPoint presentations covering all of the beginner geocaching topics which will be posted to the GeocacheAlaska! website as PDF downloads and will also be immediately available for any members of GeocacheAlaska! to use in delivering entry level presentations as either PDF (print) or PowerPoint (slide show) versions at various events.
5. Work with the Membership Subcommittee to develop a GeocacheAlaska! membership recruiting PowerPoint advertisement that will be shown at the beginning of every internet delivered educational event sponsored by GeocacheAlaska!.
6. Work with the Fundraising Subcommittee to assist with delivering fund raising campaign messages to attendees at all GeocacheAlaska! sponsored educational events.
