Event Planning

Each component of planning an event is broken down from the highlights in a HuskyLEAD 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! More info below under Publicizing Your Organizations Event.

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.
