Join us on Wednesday, March 8 for the AWC Springfield luncheon program: Ways to Take the Boring Out of Your Meetings.
All meetings share the same objective—to gather people together with a common mission, objective or interest.
Unfortunately, many meetings share a common characteristic of being boring. Yaawwnn. Planners don’t try to make them boring, but habit and busyness and lack of resources preclude them from adding zip and zing to their meetings.
Dana Saal will share ways to bring that zip and zing into your meetings that will make people want to attend and have them looking forward to the next one.

Dana L. Saal, CMP, CAE, has been planning meetings for associations for more than 30 years. She recently decided that coaching meeting planners is now more fun than proofing function sheets, counting coffee cups and writing scripts. She consults with associations, speaks and teaches, and writes a blog, Dana’s Meeting Minutes, for the Illinois Society of Association Professionals.
