Event Coordinator

Idaho State University CommUniversity

I organized two events which reached a total of about 2,000 people each. With the coordinating of these events, I received donations from local businesses, organized marketing meetings as well as worked with the marketing team to help advertise for the events, and I conducted follow up surveys for the events to collect feedback from attendees. These events had little to no budget, so I worked primarily with donated goods and services.
