- Ask around to see what members would be interested in doing
- Check out information to prepare for the event (e.g., location, operation hours, restaurants, etc)
Who did you need to collaborate with?Edit
- GM: depending on the event, activity coordinator may need to work with GM to ensure that the room booking and equipment booking are done
- Chair/co-workers: ensure that the events are meaningful for everyone and everyone is on the same page
- Actually everyone! Get people coming out to social or participant in activities.
Anything else you would like to say!Edit
- Some challenging part of being an activity coordinator is that trying to come up with a good/fun game is not always easy and it is sometimes difficult to organize activities everyone will love and have time to participant.
- I enjoyed helping out with events and see people having fun
- Different events serve different functions. They may help us to know each other more, connect through prayer and sharing, just let us to relax, have a chance to assist people outside of our fellowship. We may have a lot of social events, and they are all good. However, we should always remind ourselves the goal of the events and balance out between the programs in MCCF.
- You need to have a clear vision of what the event is for, and always always always do not be discouraged by the number of attendance! People tend to be more busy and less willing to come out during midterm period so plan the activities that best fit the situation (e.g. time people have).
