Fall 2019 Trustees Meeting


MSI’s semi-annual Board of Trustees meetings are a unique benefit of MSI membership. For many Trustees, these are “must-attend” events—a welcome opportunity to recharge, connect with marketing peers, and take in new ideas and marketing insights. Board of Trustees meetings are developed around broad themes that are relevant across industries and company roles. Trustees meetings are “sales free” events where top marketers and academic experts share their knowledge, experience, and insights, and attendees benefit from a rich learning and networking experience. As one Trustee said: “You always walk out with some big ideas.” Trustees meetings are open only to Trustees from MSI member companies or their designates.
