I’ve been editing MIME for more than four years, and there is one topic that never gets old: the value of a skilled planner. Over and over I hear frustration from members of our industry over the lack of public education when it comes to planning. The CMP designation, of course, was created partially in response to that general ignorance, providing planners with a way to obtain and demonstrate a set of skills and training.


The Westin Galleria Dallas has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to the property. Every inch of the hotel has been updated, including the 448 guest rooms and 10 suites, the lobby, the 54,000-square-feet of meeting space and the hotel’s restaurant.
