 In-Person Event, Meting, Practice/Rehearsal Attendance - Spring 2021

All student organized and/or student run in-person events, practices/rehearsals, or meetings, you must submit a list of those who attended to Lowry Center & Student Activities (LCSA). This includes any members of the organization in attendance. Attendance must be submitted within 12 hrs of the in-person event or meeting time through a Microsoft Form. This list will be used if the need arises for contract tracing due to COVID-19. Not completing this form could jeopardize your ability to host future events or meetings and operate as a student organization.
