Board Leader Open Forum
Facilitator: Mary Ellen Reihsen
 
As meeting and event industry associations we all face similar difficulties, but with our distinct perspectives, personalities, and backgrounds we may have different innovative and unique solutions to how we manage these challenges.

By putting our heads together and helping each other strengthen our individual association boards we’ll collectively build a better meeting and event industry in the Pacific Northwest.
