Conducting an evaluation after the event provides a chance to wrap up details and to gather valuable information that can help your organization improve the event. A thorough evaluation includes feedback from organizers, staff, volunteers, participants and sponsors.

  • Outline a plan for evaluating activities before the event begins and gather data while people are on site.
  • Evaluation forms should be available and accessible; refer to the sample evaluation form.
  • Finally, the Planning Committee should schedule an evaluation session shortly after completion of the event.

Your organization may be interested in seeking more information about specific areas during the planning of your special event, or perhaps you would like to discuss issues or ideas with someone in the special events field.

Contact Special Events Developer Paul Burke for advice in this area. He can be reached at 625-2305 or at
