Event Planning Checklists & Resources

Event planning can be hard, but through the basic checklist in getting started, you can manage the recommended tasks related to what you should be doing a month before your event, the week before the event, the day of the event, and after your event has concluded. 


Delegating Responsibilities

Often times, there are a lot of tasks associated with hosting an event on campus. Before you get too far into your event planning process, meet with members of your student organization to discuss what resources exist that can help you plan your event. It helps to have friends that say they will help you plan your event, but sometimes a more formalized committee may be necessary to see to the success of your event on behalf of your organization.


SAE is Here to Help!

As you plan your event and create task lists may provide general to-do list items, your event will have specifics that will be necessary to complete. If you are struggling to determine what things you may need to do to have a successful event, consider having a meeting with an SAE staff member. Feel free to email activities@sfsu.edu. They will be happy to meet to discuss what specific things you may need and may be able to assist connecting you to campus resources you didn’t know were available.
