Event Appeal Process Guidelines Effective immediately, the UA System has canceled all non-essential University meetings, gatherings and events. Based on the guidance provided by the UA System, an online event appeal process was developed. Prior to determining if an event should be allowed to be held the following things will be considered: Can it be postponed or canceled? Why should the event be considered essential? How big will the event be? Are visitors attending from areas of particular or elevated concern? If the event does go forward, what additional planning is needed? Has the dean of the academic unit or vice president of the division hosting the event provided approval in light of the guidance? Once the form is completed, a committee will review applications and make recommendations to Chad Tindol, Chief Administrative Officer, who will decide if the event can be held as originally planned. The event approval committee members are: Janie Jenkins, Director- University Ceremonies and Events LeNá McDonald, Project Coordinator-President’s Office Robby Plumb, Jr., Assistant Director- Risk Management Click here for the Event Appeal form.
