    Social Event Requirements
    • Follow all city, country and state laws
    • Appoint sober event monitors - Residence and Greek Life recommends 2 chapter members per 100 guests to serve as sober monitors. They should also agree not to drink at all the day of the event.
    • Do not use chapter funds to purchase alcohol - The safest method of alcohol control is through a third-party vendor; if this is not possible, make the event BYOB. Remember that persons 21 years of age and older should be permitted to bring and consume alcohol at a BYOB party.
    • Do not sell alcohol - Charging for admission or for a cup and then providing alcohol is never allowed.
    • Have a sober event monitor or security guard check identification at the door and identify those over the legal drinking age with wristbands
    • Have a closed party - Limit the guest list to members, dates and friends. This should be no larger than 3X the number of members (IE - 20 members = 60 guests allowed for a total of 80 people).
    • Do not permit drinking games
    Social Event Tips & Tricks
    • Serve unsalted food and non-alcoholic beverages
    • Set a starting and ending time for the event
    • Keep people away from roofs, open windows, balconies, open wells and docks
    • Provide safe transportation - a designated driver program or third party transportation service
    • Post signs which indicate your chapter complies with and enforces laws and policies with respect to alcohol
    • Do not use alcohol as the main attraction
    • Do not allow bottles
    • If some is intoxicated, make sure that he or she is taken care of properly
    • Hire security
    • Have a procedure or policy defined with dealing with difficult guests
    • "After hours" parties are not encouraged - often many of the guests who will attend are already intoxicated, which will increase your liability exposure
