Board.org Campus FAQ
Will there be on-site support?
We do not have staff to manage the event for you. This is not a full-service conference center. We will have a staff member present and will help you when we can. Think of it as an Airbnb — you’re our guest when you’re here and we’ll try to accommodate you, but we can’t do it all.
Do I need to sign a safety waiver?
Trash Mountain Ranch is a is a real ranch, with real dangers, and — depending on the nature of your event — you may have to sign a waiver. If your event is using some of the outside spaces, all your attendees need to sign a waiver.
Reference this list to see if your event may be subject to a waiver:
- Using the interior of the conference center during normal business hours: No waiver.
- Hosting an event outside that will go beyond our backyard into our extended hiking trails or back field: Need waiver.
- Hosting an event with alcohol: Need waiver and special agreement permitting alcohol.
- Hosting an event with children: Need waiver.
- Hosting an event with over 50 people in attendance: May need waiver.
Contact us with your event details for more information.
Can I provide alcohol at my event?
Alcohol may be permitted with prior approval, subject to the following:
- You will need to hire a TABC-certified bartender at your own expense.
- You may be required to purchase insurance for your event.
Do I need insurance?
We require insurance on a case-by-case basis and we will let you know if you need to purchase it. If you do need insurance, we recommend K&K Insurance, but you are free to use your own agent. Please make sure Board.org LLC and Global Worldwide International LLC are listed as “additional insured.” If alcohol is present at your event, we are likely to require you to have insurance.
Food and catering:
- Are there any catering restrictions?
No, you are welcome to bring food in from wherever you like. If you need recommendations, we have a list we can share with you.
- Will there be resources or equipment at the facility that we can use? There is no full-service kitchen. We have a fairly wide range of kitchen and beverage supplies you can borrow by advance arrangement. We can make refridgerator space available.
- Will you provide someone to assist with our catering needs? We do not offer events or facilities staff to provide, setup, or assist with your event’s catering. But, we will have a staff member present who will help you when possible and will be able to show you where things are.
- Setup is your own responsibility. You cannot arrive early unless you’ve received prior permission. We have limited space where you can store items in advance.
