Meetings & Conventions: Short Cuts June 2003
You Told Us...
In March, we asked readers if they
ever felt pressured to plan personal events for friends and family.
Among your responses:
• “I got stuck planning my family’s reunion
last July. It was a disaster. Thank God I have good relationships
with suppliers. From now on, everyone can do their own thing; I
will show up and party hearty.” Renee Pierce, Sacramento,
• “I was suckered into planning a family
reunion for this October. I wound up driving from Indiana to
Tennessee in January snow to do seven site inspections. I put down
the $700 deposit on the chosen property and have yet to see a dime
from my sister-in-law.” C.D., Indianapolis
• “Friends try to weasel suggestions from me.
They don’t come right out and ask, but I end up planning the whole
thing anyway.” Lauren Ann Accardo, New York City
• “I’m pressured to plan events, but ultimately
it doesn’t bother me. In exchange, I get free medical and legal
advice. I figure it all works out.” Dale Lando, Sacramento,
