Event Hosting

GARN serves as a resource for school counselors when hosting events.  We encourage you to review our event best practices, send an event invitation to GARN members, or request to plan an event with GARN!

Extending an Event Invitation

If you're looking for counselors to help with a panel, presentation, college fair, or event, please reach out by emailing GARN.  We also suggest that you review our best practices at the link above.

Please provide the following information in your email communication:

  • Type of Event: College fair, Panel, Presentation (if presenting is expected, please include topic or questions)
  • Date
  • Start and end time
  • If food (meals or snacks) and beverages will be provided
  • Parking information
  • Other logistics specific to location: Will volunteers be on hand to help unload materials? Is there a best entrance to use upon arrival?
  • Grade levels expected to attend fair
  • Schedule of events: Will students rotate through at different times? Does the fair include breakout sessions?
  • Contact information of fair organizer
  • If the event space is climate controlled
