The Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) hosted its first inperson event since the pandemic began at The Medalist Golf Club in Marshall. MSAE’s goal was to host a fun networking opportunity that followed COVID guidelines, and helped members gain confidence attending in-person events again. Like many other COVID-era gatherings, cancellation policies were waived, and social distancing and mask-wearing within 6 feet were encouraged. Sponsors were assigned golf carts to minimize contact with golf course staff and volunteers, while attendees’ golf carts were pre-loaded with name badges, gifts from sponsors, and more in order to bypass registration. Originally planned to be a May event, the Fall Golf Outing still recruited 82 golfers. Rain threw another obstacle into the mix, but the professionals took it in stride and had a few laughs along the way.

The smiling faces say it all: it’s great to be together again! In late June, the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority welcomed 18 executive meeting planners from across the country to the destination, marking the first assembly of a new customer advisory board (CAB) focused on meetings, conventions and trade shows.

 

The New York and New Jersey chapters of the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE), along with the Banquet Event Strategic Task Force (BEST Task Force), held an in-person gathering in August, their first since the start of the pandemic.
