Meetings F&B expert and frequent Meetings Today contributor Tracy Stuckrath, owner of thrive! meetings & events, is launching an eight-course Every Meal Matters With Tracy Stuckrath educational series for planners that will cover a wide range of topics.

The cost for the eight-module, 10-week series is $697, with registration set to close January 8 at publication time. The first segment will launch January 11.

“I launched this course because it became apparent from the questions I get from members of my Eating at a Meeting Facebook group and through in-person—before COVID—and virtual trainings I’ve provided over the last 10 years,” Stuckrath said, adding that the courses will cover both F&B issues common in the pre-pandemic environment as well as how to work with pandemic guidelines.

Course content and features include the following:
