Please use ‘Times Next 12px’ as the font and Colours: black, white, gold (Pantone: Old Gold 15-0965 TCX) in all your communications, where it allows.
YOUR CEC LOGO
The CEC team will send you a CEC logo specific for your city or organization which would have your city/university/organization name on it. As stated in your CEC License, by signing up to the Organizers program, you understand that you will need to use the CEC logo that the CEC team provides you with without altering the logo in any form (altering the logo includes adding new images or letters to it).

YOUR CEC ORGANIZERS PROFILE
Once you are accepted as a CEC Organizer, you will be able to add the information in your member profile. The CEC Organizers Coordinator will add you to the Organizers List which will be publicly visible. You will then be able to post your CEC events information by clicking "Add an Event" and edit your profile as you see fit.
CEC has prepared template slides for you. Use the "CEC Introduction - template" slides template to introduce CEC to your team and sponsors, presenting the club in events and to send to press and other organizations. When you are running a CEC workshop or event, use and adapt the "Event slides - template".
Click the images, download the "power point" and edit as you see fit for your occasion.
