Advisor/Coordinator Email:

I was responsible for...
-Plan and coordinate member meetings, informational meetings, ground breaking and team meetings -Mailing out newsletters -Creating binders for members -Helping with other development related duties, tasks as needed

I accomplished...
Being able to plan the grand opening for our Ankeny building. We did a state fair theme and go to work with a lot of the members and include them in the celebration.

I learned...
We had a little issue with the heat and a lot of the men were were outside directing parking and we actually had one of members pass out so it's important to think of the little things like getting water and making sure they are getting breaks.

Advice for others...
Always put yourself out there when looking for internships because i truly believe that things do happen for a reason.
