You will handle email communication with members and stakeholders regarding events and manage the attendee lists.
Additionally, you will support the event manager and director with event logistics by assisting with seating plans, drafting sponsorship proposals, coordinating raffle prizes, developing processes and templates to enhance the quality and professionalism of ALP events, and assisting with onsite event delivery.
