As the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the spring of 2020, OATUG made the difficult decision to cancel its annual in-person event and change to a virtual conference. We challenged ourselves to make the online event as valuable as a replacement for the in-person experience as possible…including the delivery of an impactful keynote session.
Company culture sets organizations apart and shows the world who they are. Today’s candidates want to join companies that match their values, beliefs and purpose, just as companies look for candidates who meet the same criteria. Meeting Expectations has always focused on its culture and worked to make sure every new employee is not just a good fit for the position, but for the culture as well.
While Meeting Expectations offers professional writers and editors for its association clients, we are also skilled in collaborating with volunteers in the editor role; as we call them, “volunteditors.” Read our tips on how to deliver the highest quality publications.
Associations are facing an aging demographic. This is impacting membership, the makeup of boards of directors, and the hole it’s leaving as senior leaders retire and or move on to new careers. However, by focusing on the generation of younger workers, associations can create a relevant and progressive organization that’s poised to meet the needs of members today and into the future.
Meeting Expectations’ in-house Site Selection team has been on the front lines, not only supporting our clients, but also working closely with our convention and visitor bureau (CVB) partners across the country. Among these partners is Brian-Douglas Standwood, Assistant Sales Director at Visit Aurora, the Colorado city’s CVB. We spoke with him this week on how COVID has impacted CVBs.
Your event is moving from a physical venue to a virtual space. Don’t lose the revenue: virtual events can showcase their return on investment – and let you retain those sponsorship dollars.
