by Alesa Larsen

The following steps will help to ensure that your next event has the greatest chance of success:

  1. Set goals for the event.   The very first step should be to formally identify what you want to accomplish from the event.  
  2. Assemble a team.  The best events extend beyond the event director, with volunteers offering their own skills and expertise where needed.
