2013 Annual Meeting ~ Fort Lauderdale, FL

I can't believe my first event with my new company is OVER! Time really does fly when you love what you do. Remember just 3 short months ago when I was starting this new journey??  It feels like yesterday! CRAZY! 

I decided to start doing photo recaps of my meetings because I want to keep a record of these events that I spend SO much time working on. And it's always great to look back and be inspired for future meetings!

And of course, this is my first ever event with my new company (the first of many!) so this one will always be special. :)

I will say that I believe a Meeting Planner is only as good as her staff. And man, do I have an awesome team. Coming from a job where the staff was like my second family and I had great leadership, I've hit the jackpot and found another job with the same benefits!

The Marketing/Membership team (the Division I am a part of) is fantastic. Not only did they welcome me with open arms, but they helped me every step of the way as I planned this Meeting while trying to navigate a new job. 

Our event was a success! We got SO much great feedback and many said it was the best one yet! This experience has been so encouraging and made me really excited for what's to come!


OK enough rambling.. here are some pics from the event!

  1. The first place I traveled for my current job was Ft. Lauderdale. I loved it and keep hoping the conference will return there. Looks like you had a great meeting :)
