In this course, you will gain an overview of the most important considerations for site selection and how those factors may have changed in the last 2 years with the pandemic. How does your Association define objectives for meetings and events in alignment with organizational goals and stakeholder needs. What are the best practices used by Associations to prioritize the use of organizational resources (i.e., cost considerations) to achieve successful meetings and events.
