Members on the Move


Roz Stuttley, CMP Director Client Services, Choose Chicago

Roz Stuttley has recently been awarded CVB CSM of the Year by Successful Meetings. Planning a meeting in a city as busy as Chicago can seem like a daunting task, but it’s not when you have the help of a partner like Roz Stuttley, who has been with Choose Chicago, the Windy City’s destination marketing organization, since 2012, starting as a client services manager and being promoted four years later to director.

A Chicago native, she couldn’t be prouder to promote her hometown. “I think one reason why Roz is so special is that she truly loves Chicago and loves to present the city in its best light,” says Anastasia Courtney, senior convention manager at the Modern Language Association, which promotes the study and teaching of language, literature, writing and cultural studies. Mandy Davis-Aitken, vice president of meetings for the American Society of Clinical Oncology, agrees. She describes Stuttley as part of the team who ensures her events are a success, “from helping a sick staff member make a doctor’s appointment while on-site to locating a contact with the city when construction or a Taylor Swift concert causes shuttle issues.”

Anne Carey, Attendee Engagement Manager, BCD Meetings & Events

BCD Meetings & Events in Chicago has recently appointed Anne Carey to the new position of Attendee Engagement Manager. An association administrative and meeting professional for over ten years, Anne Carey has managed meetings from 10 to 2900 attendees. For eight years “Carey” (her nickname) executed a four-day annual conference and trade show with 2900 attendees, 250 booths, 160 speakers, 84 concurrent sessions and 20 workshops.
