Request the President to Attend an Event

As we continue to move forward to insure we maximize our staffing resources through coordination and collaboration of events. As part of the special events management system, we require all members of the University’s internal and external community who would like President Allen’s attendance to abide by the following:


At Least Two Months Prior to Event

  • Reservation and/or space confirmed through EMS or off-site location
  • Conference & Event Services liaison assigned and initial meeting with Division representative or event contact
  • President’s attendance requested to President’s Office by Conference & Events Services or through submission of online request using the form below.

Three Weeks Prior to Event

  • Suggested Remarks due to President’s Office and Marketing & Communication for review

Two Weeks Prior to Event

  • Presidential Briefing including full event details due to President’s Office, submitted by Director of Strategic Initiatives

One Week Prior to Event

  • Final RSVP and/or Event Supplements (biographies, strategies, etc.) due to President’s Office, submitted by Director of Strategic Initiatives

This process will help keep the President’s Office as well as other University offices informed about all of the various activities around campus. This process addresses all of the details necessary to make an event run smoothly, including proposed talking points, budget, questions about invitations and invitation lists, nametags, etc.
