Spring is a great time to be in St. Louis. Flowers start to bloom, all the outdoor activities start up again and the Cardinals are back in action! Spring is also a sign that the busy travel season is right around the corner and I'm sure everyone is busy getting ready to showcase everything St. Louis has to offer.

Mark Your Calendar for the May 16th Meeting!

Come join us on Wednesday, May 16th, at Hollywood Casino for an informative and enlightening luncheon. We will have an officer from the St. Peters Police Department speak to us about active shooters and security from a venue point of view. This will help give a better idea on a security approach and the best way to handle emergencies. This is a luncheon you won't want to miss! Click here for more information and to register.

Joule was a beautiful location and host for our March luncheon. Guests were able to enjoy the delicious lunch from Butler's Pantry and learn more about extending their event season past St. Louis' traditional tourism season. A big thank you to our panelists for sharing with us as well: Katy Enrique and Kelly Tecklenburg with Six Flags, and Julia Row with the St. Louis Cardinals.

A special thank you to our panel, Joule and The Gateway Arch!
