“When I started my first job in the industry, I was handed a copy of Professional Meetings Management and I was told to read it! While that was at the beginning of my career and education in this industry, it became a wonderful resource that I referred to time and again as my responsibilities continued to grow. I still keep a copy handy and use it review best practices and as I bring new people onboard I offer it as a resource to them.”
Susan Katz, Director, Corporate Events & Travel, True Value Company
“I have kept a copy of the PMM in my office as a resource for years and I encourage my staff to use it as a reference, not only for the examples and illustrations, but also to understand the strategy, rationale and best practices behind all we do. PMM has also been my textbook for the online course I teach “Planning and Operations” part of the Convention and Meeting Management Certificate Program, offered through Algonquin College in Ottawa Canada. It is an excellent resource for the students in the program. I encourage them to keep the book as a reference in the future.
Gail McHardy, CMP, Director, Conference and Events, Canadian Society of Association Executives
