Reception Checklist

Expense Type to use in e-Reimbursement: Event-Fees/Refreshments/Food

A reception is defined as a gathering of individuals associated with an UW­sponsored event that provides the opportunity for interaction in a setting that is not purely social in nature. Unlike a business meeting, a reception may not have a specific agenda or time frame. Like a business meeting, the purpose must be related to or promote the mission of the hosting department.
