New Google Sheet for a Collegiate Contact List: 2018/2019

Post by Progcon » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:41 pm

Hello,

People on the Discord were bemoaning how outdated the collegiate contact list was. It would be great if people could edit this Google Sheet with current information about their club. The most important thing is correctly inputting the club email and that email should be actively monitored by club officers.

This spreadsheet may be organized by region, etc. in the future.

Let me know if there are any issues. I guess feel free to input the info for other clubs if you have it, but I would prefer it if people actually in the club filled out the information to maintain accuracy.

I think it would be a good idea to have an annual top-down project in which we go through every school on the list and verify that the contact info is current and actually works. Plenty of people forget to update the old list when they leave their club, I've been burned by outdated contact info in the past.

I'm willing to coordinate this.

That sounds awesome. Would be great to send out a couple of reminder emails in maybe April and May, when people are transitioning their clubs, so things can get handed over before people stop checking their .edu accounts and they expire.

I think this is a great idea. I also think it would be helpful if this list were sorted by state, or at least region, like the previous list was.

I made separate sheets for each region. If you add your team, please add to the main list and also add it to what you consider its region. For some teams, I had to decide its region, so feel free to correct my choice of region. In reality, this is meant to help TDs recruit teams to their tournaments, and I don't see it as a big deal if, say, a TD in New Jersey has to email the teams in the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic.

I hope people find this useful.

I've added a "date updated" column to the sheet, with formatting based on how recently the contact info was updated.

Thank you to all the schools that have filled this form out. However, I know many schools have not and may not check the forums as often. Please fill this out if your school hasn't done so, and I'd ask that you fill in information for schools that you are aware of. Please leave a comment in the sheet if you are filling in the info for another college, so someone can verify that the email given is still being checked. A simple "This was the email State College University used for Fall last year" would be great.

Thanks again all!
