Do you plan events, conferences or meetings on for students, faculty or staff on campus? Are you responsible for sending out invitations for meetings and events? Do you coordinate lunches or arrange catering for meetings? Are you interested in learning more about planning events?

The Event Planners Network (EPN) was started earlier this year and includes event coordinators, meeting conveners, invitation creators and conference planners along with others who want to learn more about planning events. The EPN meets quarterly and is open to all York University staff, whether event planning is officially part of your role or you’re just interested in learning more.

We are now excited to announce that the first EPN Conference will take place on Friday, Dec. 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Second Student Centre. This free, full-day conference will include keynote presentations on protocol, accessibility, career development and sustainability. It will offer attendees the opportunity to network with other event planners as well as colleagues from across campus who provide event-related services. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

To RSVP, visit by Nov. 27. To learn more, contact Liz McMahan, manager, convocation & special projects in University Events & Ceremonies by email at or ext. 55357.
