Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the largest meeting and event industry association worldwide, announced a partnership with International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), an association dedicated to advancing the careers of administrative professionals.

“As more administrative professionals are tasked with meeting and event planning, MPI is thrilled to be able to provide training and best practices to the members of International Association of Administrative Professionals,” says Meaghan Ferrazza, the director of strategic alliances at MPI.

Through this new partnership, IAAP will offer a meeting and event planning certificate at its annual CAPstone Conference for their attendees starting in 2019. MPI and IAAP will also share content throughout their channels. To find out more about MPI visit mpi.org and to learn more about IAAP visit iaap-hq.org.
 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
