Event Management for Campus Recreation has set several goals that pertain to our events and our Event Management Staff. First, we aim to ensure that each guest that attends an event enjoys their experience and wants to return. Second, we want to effectively and efficiently handle any special concerns presented by our guest. Third, we want to foster a work environment that encourages open and honest communication that will keep our staff involved and well informed. Fourth, we hope to create a positive working relationship that supports staff creativity, initiative and team spirit. Finally, we aim to provide our guests with a staff that is customer oriented, knowledgeable about our events and facilities and both eager and willing to respond to the needs of our guests.
