    More for Non-Profit

    I am starting up an event planning company (social events), and I thought this book would be helpful. When I started to read it, it was definitely for charity events.

    this is a great book

    This is a must read for anyone who is planning an event. The information in this book is organized by the size of the event planned and by what needs to be done at certain times. The book also shows you have to write public announcements, thank you letters, invitations, news releases, and other letters. This book will be the most valuable resource for any event and will be used over and over again.

    A MUST HAVE for any organization!

    I read the book in one day and was able to break down the chapters to best suit my needs. It was easy, concise, and made a whole lot of sense. This book doesn't let you forget even the smallest of details.

    A Must Read

    I just finished reading Gala. This book is for everyone. It is a book that not only professional meeting planners should use, but the general public should read it and use. It is a very easy step-by-step book on how to go about planning an event. I have read many books on this subject but Gala is the first book that has simplified the process for planning an event. I just can not say enough about this book. I highly recommend the book.
