Conference & Event Services (CES), a department within University Services, serves as a one-stop-shop for conference planning, event coordination, and room scheduling. In addition, CES is the liaison to 501c3 not-for-profit organizations that are interested in short term use of University facilities. CES oversees Princeton University’s summer program for internal and external customers including conferences, camps, enrichment programs, workshops, meetings, etc.
The Event Compliance Manager (ECM) reports to the Director for Conference and Event Services and is responsible for overseeing compliance with policies and protocols applicable for holding conferences, camps, programs, and events. This includes policies and protocols relating to minors, alcohol, animals, merchandise sales, food trucks, and other areas as needed. The ECM will work in tandem with University event planners, within the department and across the University, serving as the primary resource for compliance matters that are inherent in the events community. While the initial focus of the role will be the continued roll-out of the recently created Policy for Programs Involving Minors, the ECM will also serve as a subject matter expert on other identified areas of compliance, in addition to those listed above, guiding the events community into compliance with all aspects of event production held on campus.
The ECM will provide leadership on important aspects of event planning with respect to minors, alcohol, animals, merchandise sales, food trucks, and will support and/or lead committees and subcommittees related to these areas. The ECM will conduct learning and development sessions related to the event compliance portfolio. The ECM may be asked to make specific location/facility recommendations for events and programs that present a compliance related issue. The ECM must be very familiar with the University physical space and is tasked with recommending spaces that are most suitable for each type of event.
In addition, the ECM will be called upon to plan events and to consult with event planners across campus. There will be occasions when the ECM will be asked to manage all aspects of planning and executing a complex conference or event. In these cases, the ECM will manage all logistical components including venue selection, venue layout and set up, catering, transportation arrangements, accommodations, dining arrangements, audio/visual equipment orders, wayfinding materials, the management of support staff, and financial management for internal and external clients.
