As the lead of the School of Communication Promotion and Development team (SoC PD) for the 2016-2017 school year, I was tasked with building COM Week 2017 from top to bottom with my team of eight interns. Unlike my time as an intern myself planning COM Week 2016, this time I was in charge of making sure everyone else was on task and meeting deadlines.
Though it was not required, I chose to assist on a handful of my interns’ panels such as the journalism panel and the sports journalism panel. Additionally, I was in charge of organizing keynote speaker Griffin Hammond, documentary film maker and political photographer. The majority of my efforts were focused on planning and executing the annual Awards and Scholarships Luncheon, a 150 attendee banquet event.
