12 Clock Hours | Domain A: Strategic Planning
In celebration of Global Meetings Industry Day on April 8, Meeting Planners International will be hosting “GMID: Virtual,” a live, 12-hour broadcast featuring education and activities worth 12 clock hours at absolutely no charge. As the MPI website explains, “Given the global challenges that our industry has been facing, this is an opportunity to connect virtually to gain valuable education and resources to help our industry move forward stronger than ever before. Last year, nearly 11,000 meeting and event professionals participated in MPI’s GMID: Virtual digital experience.”
The live broadcast will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Standard Time and connect you with industry leaders from all over the world. The Meetings Mean Business Coalition announced the 2021 GMID theme, “Meet Safe,” which will guide the content of the broadcast.
Speakers will include Lori Pugh Marcum (pictured left), CMP, CMM, HMCC, CED, head of meeting innovation, MPI; and Jessie States (pictured right), CMP, CMM, MPI Academy director.
The website adds that “while the broadcast is free, we’re asking you to consider donating $10 towards supporting the efforts of the MPI Foundation. In 2020, more than 2,200 individuals benefited directly from donor funds amounting to nearly $700,000. If you are in a position to help your peers, please make a donation.”
GMID: Virtual is the perfect event to rally together because when we meet, we change the world.
