Membership in RCMA opens the door to a myriad of benefits. RCMA enhances, enlarges, and embraces the world of meeting planning and the hospitality industry as a whole for the religious meeting planner. Embracing the following suggestions will make your membership in RCMA a rich and rewarding educational experience.
Periodicals. Consistently peruse the periodicals available through RCMA. These include, the Who's Who Directory, and RCMA Highlights. Timely information is provided for the religious meeting planner. These periodicals are designed and developed especially for RCMA members. They provide information, instruction, and inspiration.
Partnership. Consider RCMA to be a partnership of religious meeting planners and hospitality suppliers. The annual convening of the RCMA World Conference and Exposition enables meeting planners and suppliers to establish and enhance personal relationships with each other. By getting to know each other, as people and professionals, communication skills are developed. Business is done with a friend rather than a stranger. Strengthening these partnerships is one of the most rewarding benefits of attending RCMA.
Wise members reserve the dates of the annual conference and give priority to attending the event. Attending RCMA enables both the meeting planner and the supplier to examine and explore the practical resources that are available and affordable. The conference can be compared to a family reunion. Members are able to see friends at least once a year. The conference, while providing educational tutorials, also provides entertainment and fun. It is a wonderful time of fellowship, food, and fun.
Make plans now to attend the January 26-29, 2010, World Conference and Exposition in Fort Worth, Texas.
