The tiered system is a planning tool designed to give priority to our core mission-related events, to provide a structure to aid event planning, and to reduce scheduling conflicts.
The tiered process begins in January of the proceeding year and extends until the end of March. Scheduling for 2017-2018 begins in January of 2017 and is completed in March 2017.
Events requested outside of this process are scheduled as space and resources allow.
