The Convention Industry Council, through a partnership with Avila Government Services Inc., is now offering Avila's online Sustainable Meeting Planning Program tool to the council's member organizations. "Since CIC launched the APEX/ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Meeting Standards in 2012, we've watched the industry continue to curate and share resources on green meetings," said Karen Kotowski, CAE, CMP, who is CEO of the council. "One of the greatest benefits of the software is its scoring system, allowing planners to better track and benchmark their meetings against the APEX/ASTM standards." With the tool, planners can navigate the APEX/ASTM standards more easily, using scoring forms and checklists. A special CIC code will entitle the purchaser to a 50 percent discount on the SMPP product. More information about the discount code, as well as information about the APEX/ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Meeting Standards, can be found here
