New Streamlined event setup!
All of your event set up needs (tables, chairs, etc.) will now be available for requesting through EMS at the time you request your other services. If you would like a personal training session on the new process we’d be glad to schedule a one-on-one session. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please find instructions for requesting Event Setup here.
Please review these event setup request policies before submitting EMS requests.

EMS OVERVIEW (SKIDMORE’S CENTRALIZED EVENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM)
Training sessions to learn about EMS will be offered for beginners and frequent users throughout the semester as needed. We recommend attending the most appropriate level session to suit your needs. The pace of the beginner's session will be much slower and more comprehensive. You'll find the schedule of training sessions here.
Hands-on, one-on-one training sessions are also available. To schedule a session, please contact the Scheduling Office at email@example.com.
College-Owned Vehicles may be requested through EMS.
