The marketing and Branding Committee is responsible for the promotion of the conference. First and foremost, this committee created the "Altitude" name to be used for the annual leadership conference. The committee has molded a brand for the conference that will be integrated in promotional materials and at the event itself. Besides creating an identity for the Altitude conference, this committee is charged with creating a buzz throughout Lehigh's campus and other LVAIC and Eastern Pennsylvania schools. This involves the creation of Altitude's website as well as endorsement through on-campus communication outlets and contacting leadership departments at other schools. The committee seeks to create a strong, recognizable brand for the Altitude conference and then promote it in an appropriate method that will elicit attendance and in turn strengthen the Altitude brand.
