Letter from the President

Dear NATCAP Friends:

Summer is a time for vacations, beach days, catching firefly’s, and spending as much time with friends and family as we can.  This summer is a little different.  We, as a nation, are experiencing disruption like many of us have never seen before. Our industry is suffering.  Our friends, families and colleagues are having to make hard decisions.  If there is one thing I know from my 20+ years in the meetings industry, it’s that we are strong.  We will get through this better than before.  Things will look a little different when we do, but we will persevere.  We must stay strong and be patient!

If you attended the recent Sam Gilmer Trustee Award’s ceremony, you’ll see that NATCAP took home SEVEN awards!!!  I am so proud of our chapter, our chapter board, and the people that supported us and worked hard for us to (almost) sweep at NEC this year!  The bar is set even higher for next year!  We cannot wait to celebrate with you all in person soon! Safely, of course!

The NATCAP Board is working hard on the next fiscal year planning programming and special events.  Be on the look out for more information in the coming weeks.  If there is a specific topic, speaker, or location that you want to see, let us know.  Send me an email or contact Nicole at [email protected]

Have a safe, healthy and happy summer!

Warm Regards,

Melissa Woodruff, CMP
