EVENT TEAM AND CODE OF ETHICS

 

  • The Event team
  • An event manager is generally supported by a team that grows enormously as the event draws near. A planning team of 12 that works together for a year can explode into a team of five hundred for the short period of the event. This phenomenon has been termed the ‘pulsing organization’ by A. Toffler, who coined the term to describe organizations that expand and contract in size.
  • The event team usually consists of the following elements:

  1. Staffing arrangements.
  2. Committees
  3. Staff
  4. Volunteers
  5. Event manual for staff and volunteers.
  • The Event team management – The management of the team that is going to be organizing the event is also very necessary. The manager has to take care of this. For management the manager must know about his team members. A manager can know about his team members with the help of Sir Abraham Harold Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
