Monday Morning News Header

Good Morning from all of us at CRV, 

Today is Memorial Day, a time to honor the men and women who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. Military. Although not the traditional Memorial Day filled with parades and ceremonies, be sure to take a moment and remember their sacrifice.  

As states begin to phase into opening up businesses, there are very real issues we, as planners and suppliers, will need to work out. Whether it's seating a large crowd, feeding attendees or planning a wedding, the old rules won't apply for the foreseeable future.  Working together is the only way to find the solutions needed to begin meeting again in a way that our attendees, clients and staff feel safe.  The Board has found a number of interesting articles and live webinars to help you as you begin to plan your fall, winter and spring schedules.    

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 and enjoy your day!
Cindy Panioto, President,
and The Board of Directors

Recover and Rebuild: Preparing for Post-Corona Virus Meetings

As we emerge from this time of unprecedented uncertainty, the meeting and event industry must learn from this crisis and change its approach to risk management.

Join Brenda Rivers, founder of Andavo Meetings and Incentives and president of SAFE LLC, Sound Advice for Events. You will learn the critical building blocks to recover, rebuild, and revitalize your first post-pandemic event using a customized risk-management playbook adaptable for any event, location, or complexity.
