Social Event Tips and Tricks
- Serve unsalted food and non-alcoholic beverages
- Set a starting and ending time for the event
- Keep people away from roofs, open windows, balconies, open wells and docks
- Provide safe transportation - a designated driver program or third party transportation service
- Post signs which indicate your chapter complies with and enforces laws and policies with respect to alcohol
- Do not use alcohol as the main attraction
- Do not allow bottles
- If someone is intoxicated, make sure that he or she is taken care of properly
- Hire security
- Have a procedure or policy defined with dealing with difficult guests
- "After hours" parties are not encouraged - often many of the guests who will attend are already intoxicated, which will increase your liability exposure
