At SDDI, we want to make sure your event is a success! So, we have compiled an event management guidebook that will help you put on the best event possible. Within it, you'll find an event checklist, sample contracts, a list of must-know offices on campus, a list of funding sources, reimbursement forms, and even instructions for food permits. Download it, and stay tuned—we will be offering an event management training in the Fall, and that will fulfill an SDDI organization requirement!
