Step 5: Track RSVP's

(April to November)

Asking survivors of suicide loss to RSVP or register in advance will help you to plan for the number of seats and other accommodations you will need. It will also allow you to send out reminders before the event. People will still walk in, and that’s an added bonus. But asking participants to RSVP or register in advance helps both you and them to prepare for the day.

Collect as much information as possible about each attendee:

  • Full name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Mailing address
  • Who they lost and their relationship to them

Use our Registration and Inquiry List  or develop your own. Consider using a free online form builder such as Wufoo to create a simple RSVP or registration form. You can post the form directly on a website, or email prospective participants a link to the form.
