During the second week of April, Rachel Patterson, the Alliance’s General Manager, traveled to Boston to plan for the 2017 Alliance Meeting, Allied Professionals Forum and Symposium on ALS/MND.
In Boston, Rachel met colleagues from the MND Association‘s Conference Team, as well as representatives from our 2017 co-hosts, the ALS Hope Foundation and ALS Therapy Development Institute. While on-site, they liaised with hotel staff and members of the conference AV providers, ASETS.
Together, the team assessed meeting spaces, set lunch and dinner menus, evaluated meeting costs, planned for all of our AV needs, scheduled satellite meetings and more. Organizing the annual ALS/MND meetings can be a challenge, but our hardworking team is up for the task!
We are excited about this year’s meeting city, Boston, and our venue, the Westin Boston Waterfront. Boston is a diverse city full of history, culture and fun.
