If you are interested in association management (or know of someone who is) and want to light your own fire, there's an upcoming course, TCA 487, Association Management, that focuses on the management of trade associations and their relationship to hospitality management. (Disclosure: I am pretty friendly with the instructor, MaryAnne P. Bobrow, CAE, CMP, of Bobrow & Associates, and she's really excited about this course.)
According to MaryAnne:
Please feel free to pass this along to others who might be interested, and check out the other UNLV online offerings for meetings/hospitality. I hear the whole program is great—from those who have gone through it, too, not just the instructors!
