The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) held its annual meeting on March 13 and announced good news for the local economy and recognized numerous individuals with awards for their vision, dedication and loyalty to the Greater Lansing region.

One of my favorite roles with the Greater Lansing CVB is being the spokesperson for our Community Champions program. Now in it’s sixth year, the Community Champions Program is intended to appeal to the civic pride of local residents by providing well-deserved recognition to the individuals and their organizations for advocating for Greater Lansing as a host city for events and generating positive economic impact to the local area.

Recently the CVB sales staff attended the Convention Sales and Service Summit in New Orleans, Louisiana and came away with some really powerful take-aways. One session in particular really spoke to our team and will certainly have an impact on our approach to sales as we get further into 2019.
