This IQP was sponsored by the Worcester County Mechanics Association to update Mechanics Hall to modern entertainment standards at the budget of a non-profit organization. The goal was to update the existing signage, improve the employee timekeeping system, and suggest a new donor management program. The team was also tasked with creating a plan to better engage the youth by introducing them to Mechanics Hall as a venue that suits their interests. The study was completed through interviews, surveys, and online research. We provided Mechanics Hall with a long-term plan to renovate the technological systems at the hall, as well as a guideline to better involve the young adult audience within the area. These plans will allow them to continue hosting fulfilling events for years to come.
