Experts on Demand – Enhancing Your Team with Independent Planners & Industry Professionals

September 8, 2022 @ 11:00 am– 12:00 pm CDT

For years, contractors and independent planners have been a large part of the business events industry. As the industry recovers, staffing levels are still low, the workforce is limited, causing associations and corporations to look to these highly experienced freelance planners to assist with everything from registration, onsite support, full-service planning, and even sponsorship sales and fulfillment. This session is designed to better understand how to work with contract meeting planners in order to enhance your existing team, capitalize on experience across diverse disciplines, and ensure workforce compliance. Nann Phillips, CMP, CMM, DES, PMED with Scurry Street Management and Lisa Yonkers, CMP, Director of Professional Development with the International Association of Fire Chiefs for a conversation highlighting both perspectives – working with and working as a meeting planning contractor.
