Past Event

Events Panel

The panelists are all expert event planners at the University of Minnesota: Kim Araya, Director of Conference & Event Services, Nichole Axtman, Special Events & Programs Coordinator, School of Public Health, and Serena Wright, Director ofEvents, College of Education and Human Development.

This panel was the first step of a larger initiative by the U of M Communicators Forum to start an events circle where event planners across the University can share best practices and resources specific to working on campus. Part of this idea is to create an up-to-date online toolkit that is accessible to U of M events planners which will provide information about event needs such as spaces, preferred caterers, technology tips, and current policies. We would like this to be a dynamic, virtual space that will be updated by event planners, provide a space for event planners to give reviews, recommendations and tips, to network across the University, and to use as a resource tool for their needs.
