Events can be a viable stream of revenue for any nonprofit and hosting an event CAN be fun. However, events involve a great deal of planning and staff time. During this session, we will discuss characteristics of special events, criteria for choosing the appropriate event for your organization, what can be accomplished during an event, how to obtain event sponsors and how to manage a special event efficiently and effectively.
