New Year’s Motto

“It’s all about you”


It is ….. it REALLY is!

Do you remember the expression “If Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”?  Well in our case, if a client is not happy… ain’t nobody at Meeting Coordinators happy!

YOU are our focus, you are the reason we come to work every day and you are the reason that we are successful. It is YOUR wants, dreams and desires that drive us. We want what you want and that’s what makes our symbiotic relationship work. A funny thing happened last year with the improvement in the Michigan Economy. Once we were out of survivor mode, creativity and dreams also started to come alive. 2014 was a growth year for our associations and corporations. 2015 holds even more promise and we want to do whatever it takes to keep the momentum moving….and now with a creative flair! There is no greater success at Meeting Coordinators than to know our Clients are pleased and doing well.  Thank you for allowing us to come to work every day and for the smiles we generate.

Our Newsmakers of the Year!

This time of year you hear a lot about the local and national Newsmakers of the Year.  We know that greatness starts much earlier than an article or photo in the paper. One of my favorite sayings is “The World is run by those that show up.” Some incredible leaders “showed up” this year. When a volunteer in a non-profit membership organization accepts the role of president, it is because of their passion for their professional craft.  It is a privilege for me to list those organization presidents whose dedication contributed to the 2014 economic synergy and the wellness of their organizations:

  • Association for Talent Development, Detroit Chapter President: Michael Jacobson, Learning & Development Specialist - Chrysler Group
  • Detroit Society for Human Resource Management
    Julia Kellogg, VP-Human Resources – North American Bancard
  • Marketing & Sales Executives of Detroit
    Tom VanderLaan, VP-Business Development – Brose North America
  • Project Management Institute - Great Lakes Chapter
    Surya Prakash, Senior Project Manager – Ally Financial Inc.
  • Women in Defense - Michigan
    Julie Wood and Patty Lopez – Rose-A-Lee Technologies 

It gives us great pleasure to thank all of you for your support. You have left your mark, and we wish you continued success.
