Short Cuts:
On the SpotOther than a raise, what would you most like to ask your boss for?

“I would ask for increased marketing support. I am the meeting department here, so I would love one extra pair of hands to help me get an improved sense of what appeals to our members, 500 to 1,000 of whom attend our events.”
Debra Marts
Director of Meetings & Exhibits
International Society of Refractive Surgery
Altamonte Springs, Fla.

“Most of all I would like updated computer equipment and software. We do not organize so many meetings and events, but an up-to-date program would enable us to better process reservations. Our jobs would be much easier with a fully automated system.”
Lisa Udasco
Scheduling Coordinator
University of Maine at Presque Isle
Presque Isle, Maine.

“It would be wonderful to have a quarterly retreat organized for all the staff, so that we could both rest and get to know one another better. A few more hours in the day would also be welcome.”
Erika Zimmerman
Conference Coordinator
Association of Avian Veterinarians
Denver, Colo.
