The planning for a professional development event should ideally begin approximately 4-6 months before its actual date. Due to the premium on appropriate Hofstra space for such opportunities, it is important to determine potential dates at least this far in advance and sooner if possible. The need to book space, determine the meal options, and plan for the effective use of the facilities through Hofstra University’s Events Management office results in this being a long-term planning effort. The use of the Timeline and Check Off List in this planning tool will guide you in the initial preparation for discussing the wide range of possibilities. After you have reviewed these two documents, please complete and submit the Application Form.
You will be contacted by the OPDS within three business days of submitting the form to further discuss and plan for your event. If you are in need of any additional information prior to submitting the form, please feel free to call the Office of Professional Development services at (516) 463-5750.
