Happy New Year Contest!

Happy New Year to all you wonderful meeting planners out there. So, did you spend all your Santa Money and Gift Certificates? Well, here is your chance to win a little bit more spending fun and it is soooo easy. I have been hinting around about an upcoming contest and here we are. I will be giving away an American Express Gift Certificate (worth $25) to one lucky meeting planner that comments on my blogs throughout the month of January and on February 1, 2012. But wait – there’s more! The lucky winner will also be interviewed about their “Adventures in Meeting Planning,” and featured in a February blog (just think of the recognition, not to mention the fame that is sure to follow!).

Over the course of the month of January, each comment you make grants you an entry into the contest. The more you comment, the more entries you receive – up to 5 entries per blog. Read the blog, comment on the blog, show off your amazing way with words, witticisms and uber-knowledge! All entries will then be entered into a drawing and one lucky meeting planner will be chosen. The winner will be contacted, interviewed at an agreed upon time, then featured in a February blog.
