About the Event Forums
The City of Casey aims to provide up to two FREE Event Forums each year for community event organisers, to inform and increase awareness of Council Event related services and also provide a networking opportunity for Casey's event organisers.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Event Organisers to learn about the importance of thorough planning for events and to get some tips about the best methods to employ when getting an event off the ground. Events forums are FREE to the Casey community and should not be missed.
Benefits to Community Event Organisers attending Forums include:
- Increased awareness of the function of Council’s Events Unit in supporting community events
- Conduct safe and successful events
- Opportunity to liaise with Council’s Event Officers, having questions answered
- Gaining an understanding of compliancy issues relating to events
- Taking the opportunity to hear guest speakers with event expertise and experience
Please register your interest in future event forums by contacting the Events Unit at the City of Casey on firstname.lastname@example.org.
