On July 24-25, 2014, Greenfield Services will have its first major event for association executives. The Engaging Association Summit will take place at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, ON, and will provide the opportunity for a true exchange of ideas for a new generation of association to succeed, grow and prosper.
Joining us as a founding sponsor and thought-leader is Travel Alberta, the province's tourism marketing organization, joined by some of its partners, Edmonton Tourism, Meetings and Conventions Calgary, and Hotels Red Deer.
As a thought-leader sponsor, Travel Alberta will be the leading partner for our Young Professionals Scholarship Program. This program was designed with the emerging professional in mind, understanding their need and willingness to learn, but that their work schedule, and organizational budgets may not be able to accommodate every educational opportunity.
“Our goals to increase education, networking opportunities, and connecting the leaders of today with the leaders of tomorrow was the perfect fit with the Summit”, says Jennifer Holly, Travel Alberta’s Business Development Director for Canada. “The Engaging Association Summit is perfectly aligned with Travel Alberta's commitment to associations and their business event needs, and we are thrilled to provide young professionals with the opportunity to join us!”
“When we approached Jennifer with the idea of the Summit, we were delighted to hear her enthusiasm in our efforts to create change. Travel Alberta’s Thought-Leader Sponsorship will allow five Young Professionals the opportunity to further their knowledge and understanding of key areas driving associations today,” says Meagan Rockett, Greenfield’s Director of Client Solutions.
