Using task checklists for events

The use of task checklists is a highly recommended control measure in event management. Without the use of task checklists it is almost a certainty that something important will be forgotten by some member of the event team of staff and volunteers.

The purpose of the checklist is to minimise the risk of any task being overlooked. As a task is completed, the tick box can be marked and the date inserted. This then becomes a simple means for event staff and volunteers to report back to Event Director, who should check and keep all such reports as a key management tool.

The development of any checklists adds to the long term assets of the organisation. It can be amended and used over and over again.
