New ABPCO chair

23rd July 2007

The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) has appointed Lesley Maltman as its new chair. Lesley is managing director of MCI Belfast and her election was ratified at the ABPCO AGM at the end of June.
“I am delighted to take the chair at a very exciting time in ABPCO’s development. With an almost 100-strong membership covering the UK’s agency and in-house conference and event organiser sectors, ABPCO continues to act as a benchmark of best practice for our industry,” says Maltman. “The executive committee will work to develop our communications strategies, building the profile of the association and thereby ensuring our profession is fully recognised. We will also continue to extend ABPCO’s offering, providing unique benefits to association members while working to attract more qualified members.”
