As part of continuing your work on your EBP proposal

As part of continuing your work on your EBP proposal, you create a demographics tool that you use to capture data on participants who will be part of your EBP project. Here is a Demographics Questionnaire (Word) example of a demographics tool section. Keep in mind that you should include only information that is important to include in data analysis and write-up. Asking extraneous questions is burdensome for participants; thus, your demographics questions need to be meaningful, relevant, and as brief as possible.

Assignment Instructions

Using a Word document, create a demographics tool that has a minimum of eight questions but a maximum of 20 questions.

Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.

Please review the Chemical Safety Board case study indicated below. U.S. Chemical Safety Board. (2009). T2 Laboratories Inc. reactive chemical explosion. Retrieved from http://www.csb.gov/t2-laboratories-inc-reactive-chemical-explosion/ In your own words, discuss the chemistry of the process presented in the materials, and what the company and other organizations should have done to prevent the incident from occurring. Make sure you deal with the concept of exothermic reactions. Provide enough discussion to convey that you clearly understand the concept of an exothermic reaction. Note: An occasional short quote is okay. However, do not forget to use quotation marks if you quote. Your APA formatted paper should be three pages in length (not including the title and references pages).

Quiz on readings in Matthew – pages 1-11, end at “1.4 Stages of An Event”

Question 1

What is the earliest record of special events being held by civilization?

Egyptian and Mesopotamians started the concept

Evidence goes back as far as 60,000 years to Neanderthals and archaic Homo sapiens

It all started with the Romans and their coliseum

The idea is a rather new one, growing out of the Renaissance
Question 2

The demand for commercially driven special events has been strong enough to enable a growing body of event organizers to actually make a living out of doing what they love since

the renaissance

the industrial age

only in the last few years (the profession is 25-50 years old)

there have always been people paid to produce events
Question 3
Undoubtedly, ritualistic ceremonies designed to appeal to the gods were the prime reason for special events in early times

True

False
Question 4

The key point about understanding the underlying reasons for special events, especially commercial, is that it can affect how an event is organized and produced, especially in the choice of resources such as entertainment, décor, and visual presentations.

True

False
Question 5

All of the following are accurate in the use of the term “event planner” except

This term is sometimes used interchangeably with event manager but tends to refer to a person who plans smaller and more private events

Frequently this is an individual operating independently, and not a company

This tends to refer to an individual employed by a larger organization or a venue, who is responsible for bringing together all the event participants to ensure they are working toward the same goal.
Is often used interchangeably with “event manager”

Name 5 sources on the web that provide regular updates on event information for your interests

Keeping on top of event trends (and fads) is an important element in event production.    It is essential to remaining viable as a planner.  Trends and current fads change at least yearly, with some growing hot or dated in just months.  Trends are also contingent on the type of events one plans – weddings are extremely time and color sensitive, experiential marketing follows marketing changes and consumer fads, festivals must change with the times or become “also-rans”.

So that you can remain current in the sort of events you most want to specialize, please identify, and subscribe to at least five blogs, publications, podcasts, video subscriptions, organizational newsletters, or magazines that serve your potential clientele and provide a direct feed to your email.  Attached is  to help. Note: some of these sources may be quite specific, others may be about events in general – you may decide how specific you wish to become in your selections. Some generate daily content, others weekly or monthly.

You are welcome to also expand your selection beyond what is contained in the workbook, especially if you have a specific interest to pinpoint.  These are resources that may serve you for years to come, so select circumspectly, not for this assignment but for your future.

Please list the source, its URL, the frequency of its updates, and its primary focus (weddings, festivals, conventions, etc.)

By doing this as a discussion topic, you may also choose to see what others have listed and add them to your list of resources, too.

Note 2:  Many of these resources will do daily emails, so it may appeal to you to set up an email specifically to receive these so as to not clutter your main email account.
