    Event Description:

    Wrangling an event or meeting into shape with the ever changing variables defines the life of a meeting coordinator.  Since it ranks as the 5th most stressful job in America according to CareerCast (#4 is police officer) it's in your best interest to mitigate as many variables as possible so you too, can have a life!

    Join us for a conversation focusing on managing the event coordination process to alleviate stress through careful planning, useful tools and maintaining a great attitude.  Pose your own meeting planning questions for our presenter, Leslie Baker, manager of the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center, when you register.  We want to enrich the discussion and cover the things that are most important to you.
