Cannon Chapel Hours During the Summer Months
Campus Services Department – for staging equipment; room set and re-set when staging equipment is used; recycling and compost containers; etc.
Building and Residential Services (BRS) – for custodial services:
All hosts for events at which food is served (breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks) may select from two custodial service options:
Option 1 – Pay for service -- submit a request for custodians to clean after the event in the “Submitter Request for Additional Services” field on the planning calendar form (Trumba). A smart key number is required. The Events Office will place the custodial work order with Campus Services on behalf of requestor.
Option 2 – Arrange for a committee to take care of the following custodial duties instead of paying for service.
For more information on planning an event at Emory University refer to the following link. http://www.emory.edu/DUC/meeting_services.php
At the end of an event, evaluate the success of the meeting/event based on the stated goals and deliverables. Determine what went right and what could be improved.
For larger events, distribute evaluation forms at the beginning of breakout sessions and collect at the end or distribute at the beginning of the final plenary session and collect at the end.

Faculty and program area chairs with communication needs should contact Laurel Hanna, Director of Communications (firstname.lastname@example.org), for guidance on their events.
Students: Internal publicity is the responsibility of the sponsoring group. Electronic postings are the primary means of communication. All event notices should be submitted to the Candler Chronicle. Flyers or small posters may be posted on the appropriate bulletin boards in the Candler facilities. Questions regarding other means of internal publicity should be directed to the director of student life and spiritual formation.
Multiple, simultaneous events at Candler are coordinated with the direction of the Dean and Program Councils. These events will be coordinated through the Office of the Dean. A “Run of Show” will be provided by the events office.
For smaller events with multiple parts, please use the following documents to help coordinate the event.
Each classroom in Candler School of Theology was designed to accommodate an optimal arrangement of tables and chairs.
The lecterns with the computers & multimedia equipment in each room are NOT to be moved -- doing so will cut the power to the entire lectern, making it unusable.
Create a plan using the “deliverables” (event objectives). This plan should consider time, cost, and resources needed to successfully accomplish the event goals.
