Shortly after launching my consulting practice in 2011, I realized that both my clients and I could benefit from benchmarking data on meetings industry best practices. However, the data and statistics that currently exist are largely national in scope. For a variety of reasons, the Michigan experience is different than that of associations operating inside the Beltway.
The Meetings Report was written by Aaron Wolowiec & Alex Kontras. This report represents the firstever Michigan association meetings industry survey and key recommendations examining the characteristics of senior education/professional development staff, characteristics of association meetings, professional speaker hiring practices, industry speaker preparation and compensation, and meeting evaluation practices.
