Monday Morning News Header

Good Morning from CRV, 

Happy Monday!  It looks like the weather will be a bit nicer this week, so be sure to take a few minutes each day to get outside, away from your desk, homeschooling or what ever is keeping you inside.  Studies have shown that a walk in nature is suggested to reduce rumination — the repetition of negative thoughts and lower levels of neural activity in an area of the brain linked to mental health risks.  But, before you take a walk, check out the articles and webinars we've collected for you in your Monday Morning News.
Remember, if you find an article or webinar you liked, send it to and we'll include it in next week's email. 


Stay safe!
Cindy Panioto, President,
and The Board of Directors

Lessons Learned from a 12-Hour Digital Broadcast + Best of GMID: Virtual Speaker Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo!

On April 14, MPI hosted a 12-hour virtual broadcast, bringing together 11,000 community members from around the world for a solutions and action-based summit for Global Meetings Industry Day: Virtual. What was supposed to be a broadcast of streaming live events from across the globe quickly pivoted to a community-driven educational experience broadcast from the home offices of experts, panels from divergent places and a production team working remotely. What lessons did MPI learn from this experience, what will MPI do differently next time and how can organizations be agile enough to make changes when crises occur. Join us for this candid conversation on digital broadcast events—one of the many types of virtual experiences that can help bring communities together. Then, buckle in for a rebroadcast of some of the highlights from the day.
