What needs to be considered before you begin planning?
Here is a list of ideas for you to consider before you begin planning your event:
Read through and understand policies/procedures/regulations that the university has in regards to putting on an on/off campus event. These can be found at www.stthomas.edu/campuslife
Gather ideas for funding and estimate the cost of your event. Be sure that you will have the necessary resources.
Understand the different forms and paperwork needed for your event. If you will have a service being performed you will need both a contract as well as a W-9 from that person. If you are purchasing something you will need an invoice/receipt.
Once you have completed these preliminary steps you are prepared to begin the next phase in your event,
