Monday Morning News Header

Good Morning CRV Members!

I don't know about you, but I can't believe its already July!  July brings a myriad of unexpected things including: Today, July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day; July 7 is National Strawberry Sundae Day; July 8 is both Video Games Day and National Blueberry Day; July 9 is National Sugar Cookie Day and finally, July 10 is Teddy Bear Picnic Day.  

We have added a new section to to the Monday News.  Check out the MPI Resources Section.  Global has so many things to offer members, you may not have seen them all!

As always, if you see something you would like to share with everyone, please send it to and we'll include it in next week's email.

and your Board of Directors

Chapter News 

Save the Dates!  On July 15th, we'll host a Pulse Check morning coffee.  Grab a cup of coffee or tea and gather with Chapter members to chat about when you plan to host in person meetings, what you're building into your meetings to mitigate risk, are you planning in the New England Region, nationally, or internationally and if you're not planning in-person, what are you doing with your virtual meetings.  

July 29th, we'll host a lunch panel of CVBs and venues to talk about what our New England partners are doing to keep meeting attendees safe, alternate room setups, food service and what AV providers are expecting to do to work with clients.

Registration for both events will be available this week, so keep an eye out!
