Media Coverage at Events

Free Polling Tools: Research was done to determine the best resources for free polling. Two front-runners emerged – Polltab and EasyPolls.

  • Polltab provides a free service with no user registration, displaying real-time voting results and the option to use social authentication for added security.
  • EasyPolls is free to use for everyone. There are premium features that cost a little, but you can create great polls without paying anything.
  • Review your Force Majeure/Impossibility Clauses.
  • Review Cancellation Clause, Determine Damage Dates and Total Penalties.          
  • Understand the state, county and city restrictions/guidelines on gatherings.
  • Determine if there any travel bans in city/state where meeting is located (i.e. mandatory quarantine for people traveling to meeting location)?
  • Understand your attendees individual travel restrictions (this may help in proving that a percentage of your attendees are impacted from attending your event should it be in your Force Majeure/Impossibility language).   
  • Review the “Opening Up America Plan” and determine what Phase the state of your meeting location is in (exact plans may vary state to state) 
  • Timing is important. Most venues will only accept Force Majeure/Impossibility within a month or two of contracted dates. If your cancellation penalty is within the maximum widow, there is no rush to cancel immediately. It may be beneficial to wait and see of the Force Majeure/Impossibility Clause will take effect. However, be prepared to pay the cancellation penalty should restrictions expire.    
  • Discuss options with your venue:
    • If Force Majeure/Impossibility does not apply, are you able to postpone your event and apply the cancellation penalties to a future booking. 
    • If proceeding with the conference, talk to venue about reducing attrition exposure and food and beverage minimums

Chapter Website FAQs

Please use this form to begin your website build. Keep in mind that you do not need to submit all information in one submission. You can submit as much or as little as you’d like at a time.
After you begin submitting your information we’ll begin to populate your new website. We’ll then create a stage link for you and your team to review and provide feedback.
Be sure to include the following items when submitting your website build form, keeping in mind that content can be submitted as available and doesn’t need to be submitted in one upload:
President’s Message
Leadership Roster, including headshots
Sponsorship Logos with corresponding sponsorship level and Sponsorship Opportunities
Chapter Award/Recognition details and images (if applicable)
About the Chapter details, including contact us information
Volunteer Opportunities (if applicable) – this could be as simple as a short message about volunteer opportunities and who to contact if someone is interested in volunteering
Upcoming Events and any applicable information about those events (including registration links)
Social Media Links (if applicable)
*Please send all pictures and logos with a minimum of 250 pixels.
Since this is a new website build it’s best for you to submit the content you’d like to carryover from your current page. This ensures that the content has been reviewed and revised as necessary. This is also the best way to submit any pictures to ensure highest quality.
Once all content is received by the chapter it will take approximately one week to build your initial site.  After the initial site is built, we will send you the link for review.  The chapter completes review and signs off, then the website is moved to production within one week.

Website Update Process

After your website is launched, please use this form to request updates.
Changes are made in production so are updated real-time. Most updates will be made within 72 hours of receipt of the submission form. The caveat to that is non-standard requests such as those that would require a website enhancement to accommodate. Minor updates such as a wording change will be accommodated in less than 72 hours.
Updates are made on a first come, first served basis. If there is an emergent update that arises, that will be handled on a case-by-case basis and can be indicated in the request form.

For assistance or inquiries, email the Volunteer Experience Team.
