3. Decide or identify who will be the Event Manager for a particular event.

4. Contact venue manager to confirm date, time and details of the event.

5. Identify type of event for planning purposes - e.g., "Adoption Event", "P.R. Event" etc. Decide on theme, costs, volunteers needed and food (if providing). Basically project how the event will look.

6. Notify fosters and volunteers of event calendar and needs.
