The Gardian Blog serves as a rich content library illuminating issues of importance to the association community, particularly as they relate to professional development and networking. Popular topics include faciliation methods; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); meeting/event design; meeting/event management; and meeting/event systems technology. Our blog has been featured in Alltop and Association Universe. Weekly posts are written by Event Garde's team of experts, with additional posts each month from professional guest bloggers in the association management industry and nonprofit sector.


We soak up the latest research and trends on learning then incorporate those methods and practices into the resources we share and the meetings we manage.


We create intentional networking environments for clients and learners while also belonging to networks and organizations that result in our own growth and development.


We believe that professional development adds value only if it is transferred through meaningful rehearsal and retrieval exercises and then applied on the job.


“Aaron has already had a tremendous impact on the association and meeting planning industries – and he’s only just begun! His creative and intentional approach to adult learning is a shot in the arm for today’s associations as they struggle to be relevant to their members and grow non-dues revenue. On the meeting planning side of things, Aaron has helped dozens of industry professionals obtain their credentials - officially as a facilitator and unofficially as a mentor. His recent collaborative project with MSAE, The Meetings Report, is helping association and meeting professionals across the country think differently about professional learning experiences.

“Aaron is an incredibly talented, motivated young leader. There is an unusual, thoughtful inventiveness about his approach to work. For Aaron, learning design is a rich alchemy of science and art, which he combines to ensure that participants engage deeply and experience real learning. Aaron backs this artistry with good, old-fashioned hard work and a remarkable attention to detail. Lots of people have good ideas but few have the work ethic and the know - how to make those ideas a reality. Aaron Wolowiec is blessed with a rare combination of vision, creativity and the ability to execute.”
