As per usual, now and again I like to post on topics that we could all use a refresher on. This time around, my post is concerning event bids, or rather, how to submit them as well as a few pointers on how to make sure you have a successful go at running an event.
For the event bid process, there is a “Submit a Bid for an Event” link located under the Seneschal page at our website http://malagentia.eastkingdom.org The form is required for any event within the Province and Ridings. Once submitted, I review the information and then send back a message to either approve, decline, or request more information.
As to making a success of it, I encourage Autocrats to sit down with the Exchequer, Quartermaster, Webminister, and any other officers that can help. Exchequers will have the latest and greatest policies and procedures to make sure we don’t see anyone put in a difficult financial position, the Quartermaster will work with you to see that you have access to any supplies you need, and the Webminister will keep you on the right path as to the intricacies of our media policies. I would like to add that making sure your event announcement is up as soon as your bid is accepted is critical. Having your newly approved bid listed will help us prevent conflicts with nearby groups.
Communication is one of those things that we could always use more of. Make it the cornerstone of your event building.
Lastly and most importantly, you have not only myself and the Officers of the Province to help you, but the people of these lands are here to help make your event a fun and successful one.
Let me know if you have any questions. I’m always happy to help.
