Lakeside Chautauqua is a non-profit organization. During my internship, I communicated with clients to plan over 400 events, gave tours of prospective guests, relayed information to departments for these events to take place, ordered inventory for event team, and processed payments. I planned and executed the Annual Ice Cream Social, made an Inventory Procedure Manual and Spreadsheets, made event team packets and led the meeting. I learned how a non-profit functions and how a group sales office works. I learned communication skills and found confidence for after graduation to work in a business. AU gave me a base for my communication skills. Through my spreadsheet class, I got knowledge on how to make an effective spreadsheet to track inventory.
