We've all been there: a lone event professional, staring down a table of well-meaning board/committee members who think attending a lot of events means they know how to plan one. How can we take a powerful group that is stuck in there ways and make them see what is best for the organization, even if it means changes to a long-standing event? In this session we will look at how we as event pros can get the board on our side, willing to see new and better ways to create successful events for the organization.
