Education Team

The Education Team is responsible for the design and execution of 6-monthly education programs per year to include the Chapter’s signature event – Fall Focus! We partner with speakers to deliver strong educational content that is appealing to both planners and suppliers. Team tasks include, but are not limited to, preparing an annual request for proposal to solicit program host venues, recommending and securing speakers and applying for Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) continuing education hours. This team works closely with the chapter administrator on event logistics for registration and web listing, and the communications team for overall event marketing.
