EVENT PARTNER PLANNING
The spring and summer is a great time of year to speak to your Regional Support Manager about organizing and meeting locally for a Regional Event Partner Summit! It’s a great opportunity for Event Partners from a region or state to get together and discuss how they will approach the upcoming season, and begin planning out the fall and winter season calendar. A lot of great learning and sharing of ideas and information can happen, even among a small group of partners. Your Regional Support Manager can be a great resource to help kick-start the process, so learn more about the opportunities available and contact your RSM today!
