Workshop *Includes “Toast to Teachers” Event directly following the class.
From event creation and design, to enlisting board members and volunteers to executing details….all while handling your responsibilities …it is a lot to juggle. How do you find, engage and depend on volunteers? What questions should I ask - my committee and vendors? Free space vs an equipped venue – how to choose? “The Bar” - from license to liability insurance, where do you start? Caterers and Health Food Permits vs pot luck, donated food? Is a Silent Auction or Raffle worth all the work? What job duties can we assign to volunteers? How do I spread the word and get the RSVPs…and collect payment in advance? What is the A-Z of checklists? And WHY do my event partners start every sentence with “it depends”?
If you are a seasoned party planner or just getting your feet wet, these are all questions we want answered. Let Julie share her recipe for success. Together we will figure out the Event PUZZLE!
