I've served in a few other positions since joining GPMI in 2000 -- but this is my first time as Meeting Manager. Unless you count stepping in once (when the then-Meeting Manager was busy helping arrange the 2008 national convention), finding a hometown venue for the 2008 state convention, and hosting that meeting.
But there is something familiar about this office -- it's another one of those jobs that can't be done by the officer alone. I look forward to working with locals who volunteer to host meetings, other officers, committees, working groups, members, and guests to arrange good meetings for all.
