Member Care & Advocacy


The “Meetings Mean Business” initiative, which re-launched in Boston in January at PCMA’s Convening Leaders conference, means business. Early last month, the coalition embarked on “a strategic campaign to educate both the public and private sectors on the value of meetings and events,” a plan “intended to put the industry in an offensive, rather than defensive, mode.”

“One Industry, One Voice”

To leverage our size and relationships, we will take a multi‐faceted approach to creating awareness. First, as stated above, we will provide our community with talking points for members and the meeting industry. We will build upon the campaign MPI started in April by updating the “One Industry, One Voice” page on our MPI website. This will serve as a repository of updated information and tools to use to become a grassroots advocate. The tool kits, research and letter templates that are part of the “One Industry, One Voice” page can be found here.
