Conference Hosting (Collection of Registration Fees)
In August, 2011 a policy was put into place that mandated the use of the Office of Conference and Event Registration Services (OCERS) whenever “…any conference, non-credit program, professional development activity, or any event for which funds are collected and deposited into a university account…” takes place.
Visit the OCERS website to find a copy of the policy and information on what OCERS can do to help you host your event and collect registration fees. The financial assistant in your department office has the information and knowledge to guide you thru this process to make sure that you are compliant with any and all policies governing your event. Remember, you should never collect cash or checks.
Please be sure to contact your department financial assistant right away when you are thinking of hosting an event. The more lead time you have, the easier it is to get everything set up properly.
