A WORD FROM
Meeting Management (CMM) is a business that began almost five years
ago on the wings and prayers of Wendy Ballard and Maureen Concklin.
The company provides services for planning meetings and events. The
company works with its clients on everything from locating a city and hotel
for the event, inviting and registering guests, making air and hotel arrangements,
selecting menu choices, and coordinating audiovisual needs. The services
are "soup to nuts" or any part in between. Now, with a staff of fourteen,
CMM has been able to increase both the number and type of events conducted
over the years, with approximately 100 events in 2001.
As a result of that growth,
CMM has been very proud to be involved in the John Jay HOPE scholarship
tournament. As individuals, the founders of CMM possess very generous
attitudes, and that simply shines through with the charity of the company.
And the HOPE program is a wonderful opportunity for CMM to provide something
that feels substantial, since the money contributed can make such an impact
on an individual. The goal does not need to be millions of dollars
in order for it to be meaningful. $500, $1,000, or $1,500 to a graduating
high school student can be a tremendous boost in finances and in enthusiasm.
And that enthusiasm and excitement is contagious! What a small price to
pay for that kind of impact. How often do you get to be part of an
"investment" that "returns" those results? CMM has been able
to be a part of it for three years, and plans to continue into the future.
Thank you for letting us
be a part of the good work that you do for the students of John Jay High
School. We feel a tremendous benefit from it too!
