These events are programs and activities organized by educational or community groups not included in the organizational structure of Selkirk College. Activities that fall in this category are responsible for full event-related fees including facility rental, staff overtime, catering, etc. In general, non-Selkirk College/external events will require a contractual arrangement with the College.
In order to minimize liability risks, Selkirk College will require the outside organization to issue the College a Certificate of Insurance as outlined in the terms of the contract.
Event Scheduling Procedure
Fill in a request to begin inquiry about availability and discuss fees and details for your event.
Once the application is received by Selkirk College Event Coordinator, it will be processed and a staff member will be in touch regarding its status.
If your request is confirmed, you will receive a contract six weeks prior to the event. The signed contract is due back in the Selkirk College Event Coordinator office with the required paperwork, including the Certificate of Insurance (see above) and payment as stated in the contract.
The Selkirk College Event Coordinator will stay in contact with you throughout the planning and execution of your event to assure that all the details are handled smoothly.
