Houston Brown Jr. is an accountant and a meeting planner — two jobs that complement each other well, he says.
“As an accountant, I know what money is actually there. And as a meeting planner, I use techniques to get it accomplished,” he explains.
For example, last year at the RCMA conference he attended one of the Behind-the-Scenes offerings. In a session on room setup, he learned a centerpiece idea that he put into use recently. It saved the meeting money.
