Get In Shape with these Meeting Planner Calisthenics

Who needs to go to the gym, anyway? While some planners may keep in shape between events with spinning classes and Zumba, others find the job itself to be a great workout. Jo Angela Maniaci, CMP, who heads up Special Events Planning LLC, an event-planning company based in St. Paul, Minn., posted her take on exercising, meeting-planner-style, to the Meetings Community listserv (, also known as MeCo, a few years ago, and kindly agreed to let us also share it here. In case you missed it the first time around, here's the meeting planner workout.

Do you have an irreverent, controversial, or just plain different take on some aspect of meeting planning that you'd like to share? Leave a comment below or drop Sue Pelletier a line at [email protected].
