The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau received the Diamond Award from the Michigan Society of Association Executives at the 15th Annual Awards Banquet held in Plymouth.

for the CVB won Best Website for an organization with an annual operating budget at or above $1 million. The GLCVB competed with close to 60 other entries for the award.

“We at the Greater Lansing CVB are extremely proud of the success of our newly redeveloped and mobile-friendly website,” says Jack Schripsema, president and CEO, GLCVB. “To receive this honor from our partners at MSAE, in front of our peers within the meetings industry, is a true honor.”

The MSAE has more than 1,000 members and 400 international, national, state, regional and local branches. It provides members with networking opportunities, a platform to exchange ideas and other benefits. 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
