Success rating
(1 = unsuccesful, 5 = very successful)
Lessons/suggestions We could've been a little more organized in the beginning with the flow of programming, Bigger Room and Food will definitely attract more members.

Comments The turnout of our event was a great success. I give credit to the Heidi and Jim who were very helpful in generating a lot of interest for the national level. We highly suggest getting in contact with the National Leadership of AMSA as they're always wil
