The Philadelphia Area Chapter Meeting Professionals International is gearing up for its 28th Annual Silent Auction.

The auction, which will take place on Dec. 9 from 5–8:30 p.m. at the Touchdown Club at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, raises money for the organization to help further education and give industry professionals a way to connect. 

The organization is searching for prizes that will be awarded at the physicial auction and online at BiddingForGood.com. Needed items include gift baskets, restaurant gift cards, hotel packages, airline tickets, food and wine event seats, theater tickets, concert and sporting event tickets, jewelry, local goods and more. 

And while you can consider donating, also consider purchasing a ticket for the event!

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
