Corporate Meetings Program and Design

Recently, I was asked to look at a meetings program for Netsmart. I know a bit about meetings programs but not a lot. The GBTA Academy offered a 5 module series on Corporate Meetings Program and Design.  

The courses are to discover the basic and advanced principles required to start a corporate meetings program or advance your existing program.  The modules cover Stakeholder Identification, Building a Business Case, Architect Your Meeting Program, Procurement and Travel Synergies, and Technology and Data Visualization.  

Cindy Heston is the Lead Instructor and brings her experience and knowledge to the sessions. 

I can definitely say that I am learning a lot and looking forward to completing the courses to have a solid foundation as I look at my next big project for Netsmart.  I encourage our chapter members to look into these courses when they are offered. It wasn't that much and I've learned so  much. It was definitly well worth it!
