Meeting Professional International Indiana Chapter (MPI Indiana), Indiana Society of Association Executives (ISAE), and Minorities in Hospitality (MiH) have partnered to host "Getting Back to Business: Planning Live Events During the Pandemic", giving those planning their own events an opportunity to experience an in-person-event with maximum socially responsible measures in place - from an attendee's point of view.

This program will be held in-person and will feature all necessary socially responsible protocols from masks, socially distanced seating to no-contact, bar and networking.

The educational portion of this event will feature an expert panel that includes:

Carol McCormack, Senior National Account Manager with Maritz Global Events
Jody Clevenger, Director of Operations with Horizon Convention Center
Barbara F. Dunn, Partner at Barnes & Thornburg, LLP; Immediate Past President, Academy of Hospitality Industry Attorneys; President (2017-2019); Board Member (2013-present)
Dr. Virginia Caine, Marion County Public Health Department

Attendees are encouraged to stick around after the education for socially responsible networking, bar, and trivia. Two drink tickets are included with each registration.

Uncomfortable attending in-person, but still want to participate? 

No problem! This event will be livestreamed. Please indicate your preference (attend in-person or view livestream) on the registration form.
