Letter From the President

Dear NATCAP Members,

We have several terrific events coming up!   Join us on November 16th to learn about Critical Excel Tools for the Meeting Professional from Jim Spellos.  I attended this presentation earlier this year and it is fantastic!  Even for those experienced Excel users, you will learn something new and it will save you time!   In 2015, Jim was named one of the Meeting Industry’s trendsetters by Meetings Focus magazine.  We are so grateful to Experience Grand Rapids for bringing this amazing speaker to NATCAP and hosting us onboard the Spirit of Washington! 

Visit Tampa Bay is sponsoring our Holiday Reception and Silent Auction on Thursday, December 15 at the Crowne Plaza National Airport. This event raises money for chapter scholarships to SGMP's National Education Conference to be held in Fort Lauderdale in June.   Please save the date and consider donating a silent auction item!  

Lastly, we have several great speakers lined up for the 2017 but we need host locations.   Suppliers, check out our RFP for meeting host locations and sponsorships!  We need your support.   


Jesse Strauss, CMP, CGMP, CVEP
