Conferences/Events RFP

    With significant planned expansion for our Portland campus, we are looking to expand our current Conferences/Events department and its offerings.
    Initially, would like to engage a national consultant to assist in transitioning us to the next level.
    As a launching point, we are looking for sample RFPs any university might have utilized, in a similar vein.
    Please forward any information and suggestions to us, or if you would like to discuss we can be reached at 207 807-2904.
    Thank you.

    I have used Courtney Shelton from the University of Memphis. Monique Savage is also a great contact. Attending ACCED-I would provide some contacts or Jim Hodges at Duke is another great consultant. Let me know if you have questions.
