GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT
 

Dear members and colleagues,

This summer, frankly, has felt like an endless fire hose aimed directly at the event industry - between the wedding boom and arrival of industry conferences, to the return of mask mandates in areas of the country.

Admittedly, this President’s letter could have gone in several directions, but I’ve decided to simply leave you with this from the CDC regarding COVID:

Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With the Delta variant, this is more urgent than ever.

Please do your part - for yourself, for those you love and for an industry that has been left in an incredibly precarious position.

I’m here, always, if I can be of assistance,


Meghan
