Risk Assessment

There are five types of risk to consider when planning an event:


Identify elements of the event that may cause harm and try to reduce or avoid them.


Represent your organization with pride and dignity.


Be aware of sensitive or controversial topics.


Spend money appropriately and responsibly.


Choose space that is safe and accessible for all participants.

When you submit your event in InvoNet, you will be asked several questions across these domains. Depending on your responses, we will connect you with appropriate resources. Our goal is to help you have a safe, successful event!
