Project Details

What We Need
  • Description of event concept and programming
  • Recommendations and research on venue, catering, and other vendors needed
  • Timeline for preparation and outline of team roles & responsibilities
  • Recommendations on pre- and post-event communications
  • Detailed day-of-event schedule
  • Note: This project does not include on-site event coordination or support on the day of the event. Related projects that may be completed in parallel are the Event Vendor Selection project, the Event Publicity Plan project, and the Event Budget Plan project
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have An active board who have planned events in the past, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have A dedicated staff person and precious event insight, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We have had 4 successful annual events in the past 4 years but are stuck with the same outcome. We need a new plan to help us better showcase what we do and not be tied to a specific annual event that is predictable now. Although we are seeing new stakeholders at the event the attendance has been dwindling and we feel that the venue and theme has run its course (annual BBQ Fundraiser)
