Event Management Guidebook and Resources

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 and includes the reimbursement form you can also pick up from the SDDI office!

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 make sure to save the date for our mandatory financial and event management training (9/10) and our org fair (8/26)!
