Everyone has cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, etc. that they have not seen in awhile, I know I do. I started to think how nice it would be to have a family reunion. Sometimes it’s not always the easiest task to get all the family together, but it is so necessary.
My family has attempted a family reunion a couple of times but we are still working on tactics. Our family lives in all different parts of the world so it’s not always easy picking a neutral location for everyone, let alone a date. I began to think of the necessary steps it would take to plan a successful family reunion. This is what I came up with.
Step 1: Elect a Family Planning Committee: Sometimes when planning large events, it gets complicated when everyone has there hand in the pot. Each individual family should elect a main representative to serve on the committee. This way, every family is represented.

Step 2: Conduct A Survey: Surveys are always an easy way to gauge people’s interest. You can ask questions about places they want to travel, best time of the year to travel, budget, etc. A great free tool to use is Survey Monkey or Google Documents. Once data is collected, a member of the committee can report back to the rest of the members for a general consensus.
Step 3: Execute Plan and Follow Through: Once data is collected, the committee can start drafting a plan that will consist of the family reunion location, date, time, venue, etc. Then each member of the committee will have a different responsibility to ensure that every item of the plan is executed properly. In addition, like with any other event, it is important that everyone follows through with their assigned tasks to ensure that the event is a success.
