Few tasks are as daunting to a volunteer, board member, executive assistant, marketing manager, or director of sales as being assigned responsibility for your organization’s next meeting, no matter how big or how small!
Unlike most large associations or corporations who employ professional meeting planners, often with an entire staff in tow, many religious, fraternal, recreational, sports and hobby groups depend on a cast of devoted volunteers to plan the logistics of their events. Likewise, smaller associations and many corporations tap their department heads and support professionals to produce the next board meeting, customer forum, product launch, or annual conference.
For the novice or occasional meeting planner, the key to a successful meeting lies in first doing your internal homework, then partnering with a local destination expert, to accomplish your organization’s meeting goals and objectives. We will provide you with solid tips to ease frustration and navigate a seamless event.
In this webinar, let us show you how to:
- What information you need to gather internally, before you begin to reach out externally to plan your meeting
- A host of on-line industry approved resources to aid your planning
- How to enlist the Convention and Visitors Bureau as your consultative partner for any size meeting or event
