HomePage Reload page Download HTML Lock

The bid shall include the information outlined below.

Please note that the Steering Group does not request all this information lightly or to put up hurdles. To be successful, the event team will have to answer these questions for itself sooner or later. The sooner it does so and an outsider with experience in event management can review the information, the easier it is to correct possible planning issues and ensure a successful event.

  • Volunteer Coordinator
  • Registration Coordinator
  • Public Relations Coordinator

A person may fill two roles, with the exception of both Event Chair and Co-Chair. Under certain circumstances, e.g., if the event site staff provides most of what a role requires, additional roles might be acceptable.
