As meeting planners, we have more power than we may think to create an impact when it comes to sustainability. Instituting best environmental practices and creating events built on the principle of effecting change are increasingly important in today’s world of dwindling resources. 

Join Mariela McIlwraith, president of Meeting Change, for this enlightening CSR webinar, shot on location in the Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, Fla.

Meetings Webinar Club In this session we'll explore three facets related to CSR in the meetings industry:

  • Meetings as Conservers, examining best practices in reducing a meeting's environmental footprint, including a review of newly released sustainability standards in the industry.
  • Meetings as Creators, covering how meetings can create positive change within their own communities of stakeholders, as well as in the communities in which they are held.
  • Meetings as Catalysts, highlighting how meetings can inspire action that leads to a more sustainable industry and environment, including influencing the supply chain and encouraging post-event sustainable efforts by our participants.
