Message from the Chair
May 24, 2015
Happy Memorial Day weekend!
Hope you’ll all get a chance to relax and enjoy your weekend and relax and recharge. As for me, I’ll be working. Yes we have an event this weekend. But before you start feeling sorry for me, I have to tell you: it is on Ocracoke Island. And it’s a lot of fun.
Generally I find that well planned events are less stressful on the staff. Love them or hate them, events are a part of the non-profit fundraiser’s world. They can pay great dividends, financially and from a PR perspective and can cause great headaches and premature gray hairs – often in the same day!
Whether you’re holding a triathlon, a black tie gala, or an amazing party overlooking the beautiful Pamlico Sound on Ocracoke Island, you need to be aware of the policies and laws that could affect your event.
Join us next month and learn how to plan within the guidelines of ALE, the Fire department, and other agencies that regulate permits and safety. See you next month!
