What is the SERT and why am I being asked to attend their meeting?

The SERT is the Special Events Review Team. Large-scale, complex, or new events may be subject to additional review by the SERT before their event permit is approved. 

The goal of the SERT is to assist the event organizer in ensuring that they have considered or acted on all necessary processes, applications, and components necessary to put on a successful event. The SERT is not a governing body and their goal is not to deny your application.
