The Meetings Industry Council Annual Leadership Award recognizes individuals that demonstrate active leadership within the meetings industry. This includes leadership within one or more MIC organizations and the personal and professional integrity that allows them to stand out among their peers.
Selection criteria for the award include positions held within industry organizations, committees the leader has chaired and special projects or events they have assisted in organizing. The Selection Committee also reviews specific ways in which the winner has served as a role model to their peers. This includes work towards the advancement of the industry by sharing their knowledge through published articles, presentations to students or businesses and stewardship for the industry with any multitude of organizations related to or impacted by meetings. Many of our past award winners have been recognized with awards from one or more MIC member organizations for the same efforts that solidified their selection as an MIC Industry Leader.
The next award will be presented at the 17th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show March 15, 2017 at the Colorado Convention Center. This award is given each year to a person within the industry that has demonstrated active leadership within one or more industry associations and has displayed the personal and professional integrity that allows them to stand out among their peers.
