What I Do: At the Partnership, my conference services work falls into three main buckets. On one hand, I receive all requests for space for our internal programs and map out the most efficient use of our conference centers. I also am the point of contact when our internal leadership development programs need to rent space at external venues. Finally, I manage our conference rental program, which includes serving as the main point of contact when an external organization wants to rent our space.

How I Got Here: I started as an intern working on our federal leadership development programs at the Partnership in January 2017 and was hired on full-time in early August as the Conference Services Coordinator. During my internship, I realized how much I liked processes and details, including coordinating logistics and creating efficiencies in the planning phases for events. When the opportunity came up to do that at the Partnership on the Operations team, I jumped at a chance to use these skills full-time. 

Greatest Career Accomplishment: One of my favorite accomplishments was converting a client who came to us when their original venue cancelled on them into a repeat client who we now do multiple events per year and several thousand dollars of business with. It took a lot of time and relationship management to get it right, but they’ve written us into the next three years of the budget as their primary venue!
