Every vote counts! The following are some of the ways to consider getting the word out about your organization. Be creative, be enthusiastic—but above all have fun doing it.

  • Use Facebook, Twitter, or other social networking sites to connect with those who support your organization and be sure to use #CMM2021.
  • Send an email blast including a link to the the voting page; encourage recipients to vote and forward it on.
  • Have a contest to see who can get the most votes for your organization.
