Questions & Answers

2020 Resource Network Forum Venue - Request for Proposal Questions/Answers:

Is lunch provided, or is the guest on their own? 
We are not providing lunch on either day

Do you have dinner times?
We are targeting 6:00 as the dinner time in order to allow attendees a break. After dinner the reception will continue in the same space.

For the 6 breakout rooms, are rounds acceptable? What about theatre style?
Preference is crescent rounds

Will people pre-sign up for the breakouts so we would know the setup numbers in advance?
Each room will be set for 48 (8 tables of 6 people). Breakouts are specific to a group, there will not be a sign-up. We will have set-up numbers once attendees register. 
 

 

 

2020 Facilitation of Group Meetings Training

Is there a not-to-exceed amount or maximum budget for the training?

$3,000 is our limit, but we are a Non-Profit and have to go through a procurement, so a lower price receives a higher score in terms of evaluating the RFP.

No, lunch will be provided for the trainer without additional cost.

What is the anticipated number of attendees for the training?

Our goal is 50. Plan 35-50 participants.
