    Crafting Clear and Purposeful Meeting Objectives


    We are in the meetings business, where we are challenged with attending meetings, leading meetings and creating and producing meetings. However, as we get caught up in the busyness of life and work, we don’t always stop to purposefully consider the “WHY” behind meetings and ensure that the time and energy we spend with meetings achieves the objectives that have been set.    

    During this session, we will cover tactical strategies to create effective meeting objectives and understand how to ensure those objectives are achieved throughout the process.

    Learning outcomes:

    • Understand how to determine when a meeting is necessary and when it isn’t.
    • Learn to create relevant and effective objectives for your meeting.
    • Discover how to keep your objectives on track and pull your objectives through the meeting.

    The Art of In-Person Networking

    Presented by Angela Strecker


    Before LinkedIn, Facebook, and the plethora of other online social networks there was in-person networking.

    Networking in-person can be intimidating and scary especially if it is not a natural comfort zone for you. Imagine being able to walk into a room feeling confident and empowered to walk up to someone you don’t know, shake hands, introduce yourself and have instant rapport.

    Networking and in particular, in-person networking, will not only help build your brand quickly and will provide you with opportunities to identify and develop partnerships that are mutually beneficial.

    You will learn how to:

    • Enhance your presence during a variety of social and business situations.
    • Correctly introduce everyone in a business setting, including yourself.
    • The Dos and Don’ts of working a room full of people you don’t know.
    • Prepare you for small talk. 
    • Etiquette for networking meals.

    Attendees will receive 1 contact hour in: Protocol 


    Schedule:

    11:30am - 11:45am: Registration and Networking

    11:45am -1:15pm: Program and Lunch

    Your new board will be installed, and the chapter's most coveted awards will be presented. Come see who will win the 2024 Planner of the Year, 2024 Supplier of the Year and who will win the Red and Peggy Meyer Award of Leadership Excellence.
