Evie has done some great preliminary work on this.

Questions for Initial Event Planning:

  • What is the focus of the event?
  • What is the theme of the event?
  • Who is the target audience?
  • What kind/size venue do we need?
  • What time of year will work best? (re: other events)
  • Do we want co-sponsors/underwriting?
  • Do we want donations?
  • Do we want presentations/entertainment?
  • What kind of refreshments/food?
  • Do we need any permits/licenses/liability bond/security?
  • What kind of staffing do we need?
  • Will there be parking issues/needs?
  • What are our resources?
