Action Steps for a More Sustainable and Healthy Future

Over 80 attendees joined us for our 2014 Annual Meeting which was hosted at the King Plow Event Gallery and catered by Bold American Events and Catering. Laura Turner Seydel, an international environmental advocate and eco-living expert dedicated to creating a healthy and sustainable future for our children, participated in a lively discussion moderated by Josh Brown, President & Managing Partner of the Josh Brown Company. Laura shared her expertise and experience regarding innovative ways we can all get involved in creating a more sustainable community. The session, which involved a large degree of audience participation, focused on ways the meetings industry can adopt more sustainable practices. Prior to the luncheon Tess Vismale, CMP, DES presented a planner only session on Twitter and why it is an effective social media channel for events. The session focused on ways to better utilize Twitter in the events industry. 

We are grateful to all our sponsors of the meeting including Bold American Events and Catering, Destination St. Louis, Prism Technologies, Northlight Photography, and Active Production & Design.
