GMIC, An Initiative of the Convention Industry Council
The Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC) has become a part of the Convention Industry Council with a specific charter and mandate to advocate and educate around sustainability in the meetings and events industry operating under the direction of CIC’s board.
The passionate supporters that provide much of GMIC’s current membership base will be a valuable asset in taking on local issues and offering educational opportunities for fellow supporters. GMIC individual and business members will transition to individual supporters and sponsors, and local GMIC Chapters will be invited to continue their local communities through supporter “networks.”
This announcement was made to GMIC members on a special webinar on February 24. Following is a copy of the webinar.
