Comment le titre CEM vous a-t-il aidé dans votre carrière ?

It has allowed me to continue to grow and learn new trends within the industry.  Having worked in the trade show industry for 20 years, it informs the client of my skill level, education and experience.

Pourquoi est-il important de conserver le titre CEM ?

One needs to stay abreast on what is new within the Industry. It allowed me to continue learning.

Qu’est-ce qui vous a poussé à vouloir obtenir votre titre CEM ?

I wanted the members to know that they were communicating with an individual that was knowledgeable in the field of Events & Exhibition management.  I wanted to learn about new trends that would assist me in managing our annual trade show.

Quels conseils donneriez-vous à une personne en herbe qui souhaite postuler au programme CEM ?

DO IT! You will connect and learn so much from the Instructors and your fellow peers. By listening to their experiences and being able to ask for advice & solutions, will  proved to be a benefit you in the future.

Comment avez-vous débuté votre carrière dans ce secteur ?

In 2001, I started a temping assignment as the Meetings & Exhibits Coordinator for the School Nutrition Association (SNA). Then it happened…I was hooked! I had the opportunity to learn the Industry, meet some wonderful & knowledge people in the field and travel the USA. Twenty years and three positions later, I am still working for SNA, but as their Exhibit Sales Manager.

Comment avez-vous fait une différence dans votre spectacle ou dans votre travail avec un client en appliquant les connaissances que vous avez acquises en obtenant votre titre CEM ?

I took the content I learned from the classes and I used the information with the day-to-day operations and planning of future trade shows.

Qu’avez-vous fait ou mis en œuvre juste après l’obtention de votre CEM ?

I informed my mentor (Russell Schneider-GES), my colleagues (they were very supportive during the process) and I headed to the Beach with my husband Victor for a much-needed relaxing weekend.

Fait amusant à votre sujet – Quelle est la chose que la plupart des gens ne savent pas sur vous ?

I enjoy taking dance lessons (Tango/Salsa)
