This also including ensuring all workshop materials were in the workshop rooms ahead of the scheduled workshops (pens, paper, flipcharts etc...)

  • I was in charge of Friends membership reports, and kept the database up-to-date (this included statistical reports - eg. how many new members joined monthly versus how many cancelled)
  • I helped with organising literary events: sending out the invitations, managing RSPVs and performed the ‘meet and greets'
