Lessons/suggestions We had t-shirts made that were effective as incentives to sign up for national AMSA. We had a computer onsite to facilitate immediate registraion. We should have advertised the t-shirt offer as well as lunch being provided in the advertisment for the event to draw more people to the event itself.
