If you think there's not enough meeting planning software out there to fill a book, think again. Corbin Ball, CMP, the technology columnist for this magazine and a frequent industry speaker on the subject, has catalogued the options from A to Z in the 240-page The Ultimate Meeting Professional's Software Guide. The guide is available through its publisher, Meeting Professionals International at www.mpiweb.org. The price for members is $22.50 and for nonmembers, $31.50.

Ball says his guide is just the first in a series--it will be updated yearly with the help of meeting planners and other industry professionals.
