Event Planning

Each component of planning an event is broken down from the highlights in a Husky LEAD workshop. 

1. Idea, Title & Goals
     
Start from the beginning, but overall, make sure the purpose for the event is important enough to merit the time and expense needed to properly stage, publicize and evaluate the event.

2. Timeline
     
Planning backwards and looking at the calendar to best find a date for your event. Remember scheduling etiquette.

3. Budget
     
What are your expenditures? What is your projected vs. actual spending.

4. Marketing & Promotions
     
Table tents, posters and Facebook!

5. Logistics
     
Things to consider and all the reservations you may need to make.

6. Risk & Emergencies
     
Know the importance of planning, prevention and response.  Know emergency contact information and ways to reduce your risk.

7. The Program
     
The event is here – now what?  Troubleshoot for all the things that may not go right!

8. Wrap Up
     
Tying up all the loose strings.
