ARE YOU PLANNING A FUNCTION?
Meetings and functions require planning and Conference Services can help make sure that your event is a success. To ensure that all of your requirements are met, we need confirmation of your event at least 10 days prior to the scheduled date. Changes made later than 10 days can not be guaranteed and may include an additional charge.
SPONSORING AN OFF-CAMPUS GROUP
Groups require an on campus sponsor (current employee) who will be the liaison between the group and the Conference Planner. All functions must be consistent with the mission of the College. The sponsor will be responsible for the actions of the group and will be the contact person for the College and the group should any issues arise. Campus sponsors should plan on being here when your group arrives and staying at least until the event has begun. (The College reserves the right to change an event location to accommodate all groups in appropriate spaces).A Certificate of Insurance may be required of off-campus groups depending upon the type of accommodations required. Established rates will be charged to off-campus groups. The rate will cover overhead and use of ordinary campus equipment and furnishings. Any additional expenses incurred by the College will be passed on to the group. A listing of rates can be obtained by calling Conference Services (508) 767-7122.
Cancellations should be e-mailed to Conference Services as soon as the party is aware of the need to cancel. This will release the room for someone else who may need it. The party will be charged for any costs that have been incurred. If food was required for your event, it is your responsibility to contact Food Services about the cancellation.
