SGMP's National Education Conference
(NEC) is the biggest annual event in the
government meetings industry and is
where government professionals from
across the country come together for
one-stop and non-stop education,
resources and networking. This is your
best opportunity all year to master your
industry's best practices and to earn up
to 16.5 education contact hours.
BY MICHELLE MILLIGAN,
MSW, LMSW, CGMP

13 Extroverts and
Introverts Can Play
Well Together!
Do opposites really attract?
Perhaps, but sometimes they attack
first! Our society's two strongest
communications styles are extroverts
and introverts. While they communicate
quite differently, it is possible for them
to work together successfully.

16 Meetings Sector
Drives U.S.
Economy

Face-to-face meetings and events play
an integral role in bolstering our national
economy and key business sectors.
For every dollar spent on face-to-face
meetings and events, an additional
$1.60 - or 160 percent - in benefits for
the U.S. economy is generated.
