Want to play a part in the future of the meeting planning industry? Why not start a city discussion group to review the ongoing APEX initiatives?

The Accepted Practices Exchange was spearheaded by the Convention Industry Council to develop voluntary standards throughout the industry, in areas ranging from terminology to post-event procedures. Interested planners are encouraged to start discussion groups in their regions, and guidelines on how to do so are available at CIC's Web site, www.conventionindustry.org/apex/CDGGuide.htm.
