Prepare to Pay for Your Event

Anticipate Expenses and Payments

As you plan your event, make sure that you speak with the event manager of the venue your organization is using so you know how and when your orders need to be paid. Some services, before they are utilized, may require that the organization has secured the appropriate funding necessary to pay for those services. You always want to avoid ordering services or supplies that you are unable to pay for. Also, please be aware that the event managers will assist you in getting services at the best prices available. Often prices are lower for student events versus departmental events or outside the University rentals. Your Student Organizations Leadership and Engagement advisor can also be helpful in guiding you on ordering non-facilities related items for your event such as advertising needs and catering.
