The Generation:Meet Blog was founded in 2012 as a place for students, emerging professionals, and life long learners in the meetings industry and to serve as a central posting place for local job/internship opportunities as well as career resources.

We welcome anyone in our industry or interested in becoming part of our industry to follow Generation:Meet and provide comments and feedback.  We are all here to learn from each other.

Follow us to keep updated on industry events in our area and stay current on new trends and advice.
