SPIN:Senior Planners Industry Network has opened the call for nominations for its SPIN:40 Over 40 program, which recognizes and honours planners who are industry role models, influencers, innovators, and pioneers.
SPIN:40 over 40 was introduced in 2017. One of last year’s recipients, Dana Saal of Saal Meeting Consulting said, “Being named one of the first 40 over 40 winners was very special because it came from SPIN—a group of professionals I respect and appreciate.”
Another inaugural winner, Deborah Molique of Molique EPS, described SPIN:40 over 40 as “an honor to have received this through SPIN – it is humbling to be nominated and recognized by my peers.”
Nominations are being accepted from June 1 to June 25 at https://spin.memberclicks.net/40over402018. Self-nominations are encouraged as well as nominations from peers or colleagues.
Applicants do not have to be SPIN members. They must be:
- at least 40 years old;
- have more than 10 years experience as a planner;
- and still be actively planning (full- or part-time).
A selection committee will choose the final 40 honorees and they will receive two free registrations (one for the honoree, and one for their nominator or a fellow qualified planner*), to attend SPINCon, where they will be recognized at a ceremony amongst their peers. SPINCon 2018 will be held at the DonCesar in St. Petersburg, FL, November 11-13.
*To attend SPINCon, all planners must have at least 10 years of planner experience; suppliers can only attend in a sponsorship capacity.
SPIN:Senior Planners Industry Network is the world’s largest association for senior-level planners. SPIN has recently invited all hospitality professionals who have at least 10 years of experience to join its ranks.
