Are you a faculty or staff member who plans events for your department or unit? If so, the University of Washington Club has an invitation just for you.

The UW Club is holding a Resource Fair from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, to remind the campus community what a great place it is for lunches, meetings and retreats, dinners, receptions and more. UW faculty and staff and administrators who need to plan events are all welcome.

Alexandra Chordas, club manager, said the fair will showcase the UW Clubs venues — the Colleen Rohrbaugh Room, South Dining Room and its large conference room — and that all will be decorated for the occasion. The fair will be especially helpful to those who are new to event planning and are looking for campus options.

Also on hand will be a number of vendors, both on campus and off, who support such events. These include Classroom Support Services, as well as off-campus firms such as Fena Flowers and Abbey Party Rents.

Assistant Manager Jenelle Ebisu has created a packet and checklist that details everything you need to think of to book a perfect event, and these will be handed out at the fair. Oh, and you get a discount if you book an event at the UW Club within the month.

There will be complimentary appetizers, wine and soft drinks. Registration is required. If youd like to attend, contact the UW Club at 206-543-0437 or uwclub@uw.edu.
