Step 2: Find a Location

(by May)

Minimum location requirements:

  • Open on Saturday, November 22, 2014.
  • Ability to screen the AFSP DVD so that it is visible and audible to attendees from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. EST (GMT-5). (See DVD Technical Information Sheet.)
  • Seating for 40 people. In a smaller, more rural communities, a smaller space should suffice.

An ideal space for a gathering will be quiet and comforting. Most organizers are able to find free, donated, or discounted space. We suggest that you acknowledge any donations or discounts in your publicity materials as well as in your event program.

Examples of good locations:

  • School or University
  • Hospital
  • Community Center
  • YMCA
  • Library
  • Mental Health Center
  • Hospice
  • Hotel
