What are the duties of an Event Host

Event Host Duties

  • After getting your event posted with clear information as to Where, When and What the members will be doing. Follow these guidelines.

  • No need to email members about your event. Several will be automatically generated, announcing the event. Do not send any more, unless it is critical information. Use the event comments to post more information. Excessive e-mails are the number one complaint of members.

  • Get to your venue 15 minutes early to set up.

  • Try to make it easy for members to find the group. Post an easy to find meeting spot, notify the establishment host, use a marker like a balloon or sign. Have other members help look for people wondering around. Watch the entrance as people arrive.

  • Welcome your members and encourage them to welcome other new members.

  • With groups over 10 people, name tags are a must.
    It identifies who is in the group and most of us have trouble remembering names.

  • Introduce new members to at least a few other members if you can.

  • Always remember to keep yourself open to members arriving at the beginning of the event. In other words don't get involved in a long conversation.

  • We want members to feel safe at events. If a member reports that they are being harassed or feel unsafe, please deal with it at the time the best you can. At the vary least ask someone to provide safe escort to their car. Read these safety tips.
