Club Event Management Plan

This document is a mandatory requirement for all club events - whether on or off campus. Your EMP must be sent to the Clubs Officer (CO) at least three weeks prior to your event.

For large, complex, or high impact events, please allow a minimum of six weeks.

The EMP plays a crucial role in ensuring that Guild, University, and local government standards are met, and also aims to identify instances in which additional permits and paperwork may be required.

Though potentially daunting at first, this form is designed to walk you through all the considerations that must be taken into account when running an event, providing realistic insight into the work involved. An EMP helps to ensure that no important details are missed along the way, and also allows the CO to step in and offer additional advice and support as necessary.
