Hope your 2023 has started out very productive. It is almost shocking how different this year is by comparison to the last 3 years of COVID. Not sure we can really call this a post-pandemic year, but it is on the right track. We are back to in person meetings. A welcome after effect of COVID is the familiarity and ease of Zoom use for organizational and strategy meetings with clients and suppliers. So much nicer than the old conference call system. Zoom of course is especially convenient, since the darn Punxsutawney Phil Groundhog has predicted another six weeks of C O L D.
How may I help you? We held another successful Meeting Coordinators, Inc. Meet and Greet last month. Instead of a breakfast networking we did an evening of pizza and salad. A couple of noteworthy programs were mentioned during our conversations. Michael Schafer, the wine expert sommelier is organizing a trip this fall to Italy. Sounds like fun…check it out here. We also had Karen McClelland with Gifts for all God’s Children introduce us to some fund-raising ideas and events they are planning. Let me know if you have upcoming events you would like us to share.
Meeting Coordinators, Inc. is planning an in-person workshop “Problem Solving for Meeting Planners & Novice Meeting Planners” this April. Details are now developing.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
May all of your meetings
never make you blue!
I have noticed a number of local restaurants are back offering special dinners. The dinner and overnight at The Detroit Club, looks fancy and lovely. If you are looking for some fun activities for Valentines Day, you may want to check out the happenings in Frankenmuth.
Have a great February. Snuggle in.
