The Project Team
For the second half of the semester, Melissa, Hayley, Ashley, Sarah, and Jess worked together to plan
an event on the topic of Special Events and Concerts. The purpose of the final project is to put into
action all the information learned in class that relates to the assigned topic.

With a $50 budget, the project team was charged with planning all details: finding guest
speakers, sending out invitations, booking a room for the event, buying refreshments, setting up the
room for the event, creating programs, making name tags, and ensuring that everything ran smoothly
the day the event occurred.
