University Marketing and Communication has put together an event planning guide. The purpose of this guide is to assist students, faculty and staff with event planning at Northwest. Events are most successful when they are well organized and planned in advance. The events that you plan define the quality of your organization or department. They also have a direct reflection on the University and its public image.
The use of this guide will make your planning easier, less stressful and more successful. If you have questions regarding the "nuts and bolts" of planning an event, you may contact the Office of University Marketing and Communication at ext. 1143.
