INSIDER SERIES | Rita Washington, Missionary Messenger Magazine

By Rejuvenate Staff, September 15, 2014

In this episode of the Insider Series, Rita Washington talks about the challenges of planning a quadrennial meeting, or one that happens every four years. The biggest challenge is finding a hotel and venue that accommodate all the different programming and logistics needed for the event. She has to plan engaging seminars for young adults and the transportation for elder attendees who need assistance, for example. Her best advice to planners who organize events like hers is to really know the demographics of your group. “Know who you’re planning for, what their needs are, and then find a location that can meet all of those needs,” she says. “If you do that, you’ll have a great meeting.”
