Meeting Notices
Notices should be sent to the guest speakers, VIPs and Senior Management as soon as possible.
Once you receive confirmation from all of the presenters, you can finalize the meeting agenda
outline.

Setting the Agenda
A proposed agenda go hand and hand with the meeting notice. Agenda item owners should be
asked to submit either an abstract, or a summary of their agenda topic item. As people respond,
adjust times appropriately.

The Mailing List
Maintaining the mailing list is an ongoing function. It will include internal and external people,
and the media and guest speakers if applicable. This database gives you a comprehensive mailing
list that can be used for other events. Make sure that this list is kept current by updating it
regularly.
You may also want to develop a webpage that includes all relevant meeting notice information
including:
      The meeting date/time/location
      Proposed agenda
      Participant and speaker instructions
 The webpage should be discussed with appropriate IT staff.

RSVPs
Make sure to send RSVPs to all persons who are accessible prior to the meeting. It is essential
that the person who sends out the RSVPs be fully acquainted with all of the particulars of the
meeting and the location, so that they can answer logistical questions about parking, access, etc.
Finalize the arrangements once they have been sent out.
