Putting together an alumni event with lots of pieces and parts is exciting and fun for some of us. In this last post in the series, I'm going to talk about some additional logistics BUT I'm also going to talk a little bit about how to plan for FUN on the day of the event.
In part 2 of this road trip series, I'll talk about contacting your vendors, negotiating the contracts and settling up with our alumni.
Who doesn't love piling into a bus with a big group of friends to travel to an event? Road trips can be a great way to build a community within your alumni chapter. I talk to club leaders who would like to plan one but are a little hesitant. I understand. There's a lot to think about. But these don't have to be difficult to plan if you break up the planning into small pieces and get a volunteer or 2 to help. In the spirit of breaking things up, I'm breaking this topic into 3 parts. Part 1, this one, will discuss how to prepare to start your planning.
