I really enjoyed being able to listen and learn from other professionals. This was the first year my supervisor was in charge of the Irish Fair, and we had no manual or master plan, so using what I had learned in my courses at UNW, I was able to greatly contribute. Together, we developed a huge master plan, and it really gave me a great chance to learn all the aspects of planning an event.
