"The RFP Word" - RFP Challenges and Solutions

Join us at the PCMA Southeast Chapter's August 7 educational program ""The RFP Word" - RFP Challenges and Solutions" and participate in relevant dialogue on how meeting planning professionals can collaborate to improve the process of sourcing meetings and providing more detailed proposals.
