SGMP Sacramento Monthly Meeting

"Bullets, Bad Guys, Fire & Brimstone:
Risks in a Changing World"

Thursday, September 14, 2017
Delta King Hotel, 1000 Front Street, Old Sacramento.
916/444-5464 |

The buzz today is rightly about active shooters and terrorism, yet we face a variety of threats from unexpected forces. What about civil unrest, controversial legislation and weather-related catastrophes such as Hurricane Katrina, the Nashville flood, Atlanta tornado? These, and other equally disruptive forces may be beyond our control but defining the role of the meeting owner or event organizer in assuring that their participants are informed and as safe as possible is not. We can't prevent every risk scenario, but shouldn't we prepare for threats even as we hope they never occur?

Where and how does the meeting professional engage in the process to insure maximum participant safety? This session, led by guest speaker MaryAnne Bobrow, guides chapter members through steps in creating their own customized action plan depending on a variety of components that comprise the individual event.

MaryAnne Bobrow, CAE, CMP, CMM, CHE, is a Certified Meeting Professional, and a Certified Hospitality Educator. She has been in the association management and meetings industry for more than twenty years, founding Bobrow Associates in 2003. In addition to serving as Executive Director for various associations, and her dedicated work in association management, she now teaches in California State University Sacramento's Meeting Planner Certificate Program (Risk Management and Budget & Finance for Meeting Planners).
