Plan an Event: Getting Set Up

It is important to take time to talk with your executive board/leadership and identify your target audience. Common questions to think about are: What is the purpose of your event? What does your organization hope to achieve with this event? Why is this event important?

Example: The purpose of my event is to increase awareness about my organization. I would consider this event a success if my organization has at least five students in attendance.
