Event Planning and your Small Staff Association

Posted by Sarah Hill

Regardless of what type of association you have, you’re going to have to plan an event sooner or later. From small board meetings to huge conferences, all event planning adds a ton to your to-do list and can be an incredibly overwhelming idea, especially for the small staff association leader.

We’re here to help!

MemberClicks is offering a brand new event-planning guide, with step-by-step instructions and a thorough time line so you don’t forget anything, and you get it all done in time and in order.

Event planning for small staff associations

Here’s a sample of some key considerations from the guide:

What’s the purpose of the event- to enable members to network with a large group? Establish bonds within a smaller group? Brainstorm?

Is there an opportunity to engage your membership or other volunteers to help run the event?

What venue is local, convenient, and within your budget?

Is food included or expected?

Will your event need audio equipment or video projection? 

Do you have notification emails configured to remind users as the event approaches?

What do you expect of participation, speakers, and the venue?

 

Work through these important considerations and many, many other ones by downloading our free event-planning guide!
