June 2019 Letter from the President

Hello everyone,

We are almost halfway through the year and have accomplished so much! It’s been very exciting and we still have more to come – starting next week!

We look forward to seeing you next Thursday for our June 13 Educational Program at the Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus. Our PMCA Best in Class speaker and the 2019 Supplier of the Year from PCMA’s International Visionary Awards, Greg Bogue, Chief Experience Architect at Maritz Global Events, Inc. will be presenting, “Experience Design Learning Lab – Seven Design Principles You Can Use!” Greg is focused on improving the guest experience in meetings, events and incentive travel programs to create better value for both organizations and their guests. He is a creative catalyst who can quickly synthesize a message and help organizations deliver it to their guests at a higher level. He was also awarded the prestigious Experience Management Achievement Award by Strategic Horizons LLP for his significant contributions in creating experience offerings. In 2015 Bogue was honored as one of the 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry by Successful Meetings Magazine and most recently named a 2017 Changemaker by MeetingsNet. This event is brought to you by Visit Fort Worth and if you haven’t already, you can still register here.

As a reminder, planner rates have been reduced to only $45 including the reception so we hope to see you there June 13!

As you know, we have announced our brand-new, WhirlyBall Signature Event this November! The sponsorship packages will be opened very soon, and will debut at the June Meeting! There are numerous and exciting options available from low cost to premier sponsorships. Furthermore, there remains a Title Sponsorship available for the September Educational Program and all other package costs have been reduced for suppliers. Read about all the great benefits here or feel free to contact me, Doug Dvorak at 312-451-9393 or email at if you have any questions. Direct payment information can be found here.

As always, thank you for your support of GMC PCMA and we’ll see you soon!

Doug Dvorak
