Real-time results from an ongoing poll on our new SMM Portal reveal that, out of 36 meeting managers who have taken the poll so far, 61 percent do work in companies where senior management mandated that employees register all meetings of a pre-determined size through the company's meeting department.

The site will post new polls every week. Take our new poll on meeting policy today and check back for final results.

The new SMM Portal is the place to go for SMM tips, tools, education, and benchmarking. In addition to dozens of articles from our magazines, you’ll find an extensive research section with links to free webinars and white papers, a glossary of SMM terminology, a listing of upcoming seminars at industry meetings, information on the new SMMC certification, and much more. There’s also a forum where four of the top SMM experts—Kari Kesler, Kate Lastinger, Mike Malinchok, and Debi Scholar—are on call to answer your specific questions.
