“[Mine is] to exceed my customer expectations by providing the highest level of service!” —Cheryl M. Payne, CMP, CMM, senior director of Global Meeting Services for Meeting Sites Resource

“[Mine is to concern myself more with] event sustainability and how as meeting professionals, it is critical to be part of the solution. 2018 has been a year of awakening and enlightenment for me, personally.

Above and beyond recycling and truly understanding my carbon footprint made me realize that the same due diligence absolutely holds true professionally in the event space.” —Agnès Canonica, CMP, CMM, HMCC, global account director, corporate meetings and events, for MCI USA
