July 2017 Emerging Leaders Event
July 20 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm MDT
We want to celebrate the one year anniversary of the RMPCMA Emerging Leaders group with a fun filled day in Fort Collins as we explore and learn all about this wonderful Colorado city. Starting off, we will tour old town Fort Collins. Followed by a delicious lunch. During our lunch session, we will discuss the topics you want to know about. We will have seasoned industry professionals to answer questions about CVBs, the CMP process, industry trends, and other burning questions and topics you may have. We will close out the program with a private tour and tasting of the famous Fort Collins brewery, New Belgium.
This session is open to everyone, emerging leaders and industry veterans, but space is limited, so sign up today.
We will be setting up a carpool from Denver. If you are interested in joining the carpool make sure to indicate that on your registration form.
