Moraine Park’s Business Meeting and Event Planning class focuses on coordinating business meetings and planning successful business events. Students develop skills in meeting logistics including scheduling, preparing, organizing, managing and participating in business meetings. Students engage in all aspects of the event management process including goal setting and objectives, establishing event themes, planning event logistics, financial management, promotion and event evaluation.

This year (spring 2018) students from the Fond du Lac campus chose to focus their efforts on helping a local organization — the Fondy Food Pantry. The Fondy Food Pantry is in the process of moving to a new 10,000 square foot location. Students were given the opportunity to plan A Sneak Preview event. The purpose of the event was to showcase the new Pantry and to publicly acknowledge the involvement of SVDP and the City. In addition to planning the Sneak Preview event, students held a food drive and donated over $100 to help the Pantry grow.
