Planning an Event
It is important for student organizations to plan events throughout the year to provide its members a sense of purpose. Organization and planning are key elements to making any event a success. A well-organized event will go long ways in showcasing the effectiveness of an organization and show others meaning in what membership in the group is all about. Planning should occur by the group, not just the leader. Members should feel they are contributing to the ideas to increase commitment and avoid misunderstandings.
