TRENDS puts its own spin on #mcm and #wcw, recognizing association professionals for their accomplishments and notable activities.
Meet Carrie Meadows Abernathy, CMP, CEM, CSEP. Carrie, who is president of CAbernathy Consulting, was recently named president of the Association for Women in Events. Today, Carrie and the rest of the executive committee of AWE kicks off this new organization with a membership drive and launch party in D.C. (More about AWE here and here.) In addition to cofounding AWE, Carrie's association background includes education, training and events director at Practice Health, and conference manager at the International Association of Fire Chiefs. She's also worked events planning for several companies, including as owner of her previous company, Inspired Occasion. She has volunteered in leadership positions for Green Meetings Council Sustainable Meetings Foundation (chair), Professional Convention Management Association, Meetings Professional International Potomac Chapter and several tourism boards across the country.
