Event Planning & Approvals

The purpose of the Event Planning & Approvals process is to ensure that all Queen’s students are able to have fun and be engaged while having the event insured by the AMS. We have developed a separate process and form to approve online events due to their unique nature as compared to in-person events. The process outlined in these forms will provide event organizers with a guide to follow to ensure they are in full compliance with both AMS risk management best practices and with University policies. By filling out an in-person or online event planning form and getting your event approved, event organizers will be able to be covered by the AMS insurance provider.

Due to the high volume of events being submitted at this time, we ask that all student-led groups submit their Event Sanctioning Form at least 21 business days prior to their event date for sufficient time for review and approval. This includes:

  1. All Ratified AMS Clubs
  2. Faculty Societies
    1. Ratified Faculty Society Clubs
    2. Ratified Faculty Society Committees
  3. Department Student Councils

NOTICE: AMS Queen’s Student Constables will be closed from December 5th 2022 to January 9th, 2023. The reason for this closure is to complete an internal review and update of current booking procedures so that they can better serve you. At this time, QSC has received no notice of events during this time. Should you have an event that will run during the closure that CANNOT endure a postponement, please contact .
