Benefits of Membership

planners

GOVERNMENT PLANNER
Federal, state, or local government employees who have the responsibility for planning meeting or events, as their official duties. Employees of private organizations, a majority of whose membership is comprised of government employees, may also qualify as government planners if they plan and implement meetings as part of their official duties.

CONTRACT PLANNER
Individuals or organizations operating under contract to government agencies, and are receiving said payments directly from government agencies, to assist in the planning of meetings or events. Individuals or organizations that are compensated through retainer or commission from suppliers, i.e., hotels, conference centers, cities, etc., will be considered suppliers. This means that individuals or organizations whose income in the planning or placement of government meetings, conferences or conventions are derived from suppliers are also considered as suppliers.

ASSOCIATE SUPPLIER
Individuals or organizations that are compensated through retainer or commission from suppliers (i.e., hotels, conference centers, cities, etc.) will be considered associate suppliers.
