Present

She has managed national meetings, conferences and networking events for many SBI clients, overseeing all aspects of each event from site selection, marketing, sponsorship management and budget development to staffing, onsite logistics and post-event reconciliation. Whether it’s building momentum for a national conference for 1,500 or revamping a website, Lindsay always has a goal to work closely with clients, staff and vendors to foster growth and provide improved efficiency, value, and a fabulous member experience.
