What are the purpose and goal(s) of the VSA, and how has the VSA met or exceeded those goals?

Our mission is to enlighten people with Vietnamese culture, help our members feel welcome to the UNO campus, but our main goal this year was to rebuild. Since last year, our eboard had a very difficult time. We exceeded our goals because we brought new ideas to our organization and restored our old events that we were unable to do last year.

Address how the VSA was outstanding in the following areas: recruitment, marketing, outreach to campus community, use of resources (financial, etc.), officer training and event planning.

Starting with 5 eboard members and representing ourselves well enough to want others to join our eboard. Marketing was a big test for VASA this year. It was a lot of trial and error. To promote our VSA on campus, we have begun chalking the campus and have done a lot of word-by-mouth. Implemented tasks lists, a weekly lists for each eboard member.

How did the group work to establish responsibility and accountability among its members?

We listened to one another. We were respectful. We voted as a group and we worked together as a group. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses but its important to utilize them so when it came to event planning we used our strengths. Everyone followed their strengths and communicated.

How did the VSA work together to maximize strengths and overcome weaknesses?

We listened to one another. We were respectful. We voted as a group and we worked together as a group. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses but its important to utilize them so when it came to event planning we used our strengths. Everyone followed their strengths and communicated.

Provide specific examples of how the student group demonstrated growth and development in the 2016-2017 academic year,

Because of our new eboard, our senior advisors have helped a lot with planning our VDAY but we mainly succeeded, I feel, because of how close we are. Because we are friends, when discussing ideas, no one really gets offended or butt hurt because we understand where we are all coming from. Thus helped rebuilding a solid foundation.
