A path forward
The response to our first edition of the Plan Your Meetings Professional Development Guide was better than we could have expected. This new resource saw the most traffic of any Plan Your Meetings publication since Meeting Professionals International acquired the company in late 2015. It’s clear we’ve found a niche that you’ve been seeking!
The latest, greatest PYM Professional Development Guide delivers updated details about scholarship, online education, live events and news resources of specific import for planners, plus additional, all-new material to help grow your skill set and professional sphere.
MaryAnne Bobrow, CAE, CMP, CMM, an industry professional with more than 20 years of experience in association and meetings management, brings forth her wealth of knowledge to help you get up to speed in “Grants and other funding processes: The devil is in the details.” We’re thrilled to share lessons from a true expert.
