Directions Credit Union is one of the largest credit unions in the state of Ohio. The office in which I work is not a branch, but rather an office building that houses the loan department and business development for the Central Ohio region. As the Events Management Intern, I was responsible for attending events and assisting the Community Outreach Coordinator. I would help to ensure that the event ran smoothly. When in the office, I worked on projects, such as interpreting survey answers, researching things relevant to events, etc. My biggest project was to plan a summit. I realized how much work goes into planning these kinds of events and meetings, especially when you don't have relationships with the venues or caterers. This led me to learn the importance of relationships between businesses or people that you may need to do business with.
