Get your yearbook organized early – use the ladder!

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Summer is drawing to a close for a lot of schools in the next week or two, and many yearbook staffs will be headed back to class. That means the real nuts and bolts work of the yearbook, and the covering of events, is about to begin (if it hasn’t already).

Take a look at this post in the Yearbooks Blog about making sure you start the year off right with the proper plan, using the ladder to get your yearbook organized.

It doesn’t matter if you are using an electronic ladder, a paper ladder poster up on the wall, or both – start the year out right by mapping out your coverage and deadlines with a ladder. You will be thankful you did.
