Government Connections - Spring/Summer 2018 - 23

Missouri State Capital
In June of 2017, Annette Wallace joined the National Board of
Directors for SGMP. We now have two members on the national
board! We had a board member step down in June, so we ran
a special election and refilled our vacant spots to keep things
rolling smoothly.
Every August, MOCAP partners with Missouri Travel
Council and Missouri Society of Association Executives
to host our chapter's second-largest fundraiser, a trade
show with concurrent education sessions held in Jefferson
City. The trade show has booths made up of our supplier
partners, and the attendees are all meeting planners. This
year, the trade show was called The Missouri Event Summit
and MOCAP raised $2,656.94.

Every November, we hold our Holiday Extravaganza, the
largest fundraiser for our chapter. This past year, it was held
at the Courtyard by Marriott in Columbia, Mo. Every year, the
committee changes the extravaganza a little. We did heavy
hors d'oeuvres, a large silent auction, a huge live auction,
and wildly popular interactive games. This event is always a
success, and we brought in $5,893.57.
Our chapter is selective of our monthly meeting educators.
Our goal is to have our members leave every meeting full of
new and useful information. In February 2018, we had Chad
Stieferman present "Active Shooter." Chad is the president/
owner of Advanced Tactical, LLC, and is active shooter
instructor certified, SWAT Entry and Room Clearing Instructor
certified, and is currently a sergeant with the Jefferson
City Police Department. The training was informative and
challenged our current thought processes, while giving us
tools to combat an armed intruder should we find ourselves in
a situation involving an active shooter.
MOCAP also likes to give back to the community! We
do a school supply drive, a coat, hat and glove drive, a
food drive, as well as a charity basket raffle with proceeds
going to a local charity, every year in conjunction with
one of the monthly education meetings. It is truly amazing
what our members do!
