Thou shall not have an event just to have an event
Thou shall know who is coming
Thou shall know when it should happen
Thou shan't move forward without a space
Thou shall work with others
Thou shan't spend more money than you have
Thou shall know what will happen
Thou shall know what you need
Thou shall market the event
Thou shall always expect the unexpected
