ABC Annual Conference - ABC World of Weddings

ABC 2020 Annual Conference is now POSTPONED until November 1 - 4, 2021.

Same beautiful and historic French Lick Resort and West Baden Springs Hotel!

To the ABC wedding audience –

ABC Members’ health comes first. We want to ensure our attendees can travel to visit us from around the globe safely. Therefore, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the possibility of a second wave in the Fall, the concerns expressed by some of the registered attendees and the travel restrictions they are facing, ABC is postponing the November 2020 Annual Conference for 1 year.

This was a very difficult decision to make.

Additional information will be sent soon.

Today is bittersweet as there is a changing of the guard in the Director of Outreach position! Jacqueline Vazquez has served ABC and is truly a ray of sunshine whereever she goes for all of ABC. We thank her for all of her work and dedication as she hands the reins over to Veronica M Foster who is as dedicated to the position and duties as her predecessor.

MASTER MONDAY -- Meet our newest Master Wedding Planner -- Tia Robinson.

Tia Robinson, Master Wedding Planner
Cashmere Events
Owings Mills, Maryland
Website/Blog* www.cashmereevents.com

When and why did you become a Master? How long did the process take?

I became a Master Wedding Planner in October 2019 at the 2019 ABC Conference at Sandals Royal Bahamian. I wanted to be a Master Wedding Planner because I knew I had the knowledge, education and the leadership that one must possess to show that I was a Master. I had been a member of ABC for over 9 years in which I had always intended not stopping until I became a Master. Every time I had points or did something that I thought was “point worthy”, I would contact the Education Director to see what more could I do to achieve more. I had over 15 years of experience in the wedding industry and I know that I am an important asset to my community. Moreover, I want to mentor and share my experience with other wedding planners and assist the ones that are coming up, who also share the goals of becoming a Master Wedding Planner. I feel that It is my personal responsibility to be available as I would like to do more to help those who are coming up behind us!

How do you give back to the industry or community?

I serve as the Director of the ABC Baltimore Local Networking Group and an active participate on the Leadership Team. Additionally, I am a member of Evening Star Chapter#20, Myra Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star, Prince Hall affiliate in Maryland and its Jurisdiction. The Vice President of the Kimberleigh Development Association, Recruitment Chair of the Greater Baltimore Alzheimer’s Association and Recruitment Chair of the ALS Association Baltimore group.

What advice do you have for new planners?

My advice to new planners is that being affiliated with an association like ABC is not only important, it is worth the investment. I would also encourage new planners stop learning and growing. The more that you educate yourself, the more you show that you are the expert in your profession. I take time to take classes and learn something new every opportunity that I can. Sometimes, it may not even be something new, sometimes it’s the way that someone else teaches a topic that will make you like at it in a different approach.

We show up in numbers!

We show up in numbers!

Always proud to have ABC MD/DC show up strong at Annual Conference!

This year’s conference was awesome for so many reasons. Tia Robinson became a Master Wedding Planner and Victoria TenEyck absolutely rocked the entire stage!! Additionally, I saw one member helping another when she needed to go a pharmacy to fill a much needed prescription. I saw others sharing photos, notes from sessions, and helping others get a little clarity about some issues that were not clear. And what absolutely warmed my heart was all praying together before our sister took the stage.

I am a proud state manager and absolutely love my ABC MD/DC members. Our chapter rocks like no other!!

Congratulations to ABC MD/DC’s very own Victoria TenEyck, AWP, for a job well done on her presentation on Stress and the Wedding Professional: How to Pour Into Your Own Cup! We are so proud of you Victoria!

Are you currently doing corporate events? Thinking about it? If the answer is yes, this is for you!!

Are you currently doing corporate events? Thinking about it? If the answer is yes, this is for you!!

**NOTE: THE WORKSHOP'S DATE HAS CHANGED TO SATURDAY, JANUARY 11!**
How do you leverage the knowledge and expertise you've gained as a wedding planner and use it to be a successful corporate event planner? I get that question a lot!
So, I’ve used the knowledge I’ve gained as a meeting and event planning business owner for 10+ years to provide you with a day full of impactful (in person) education, interactive discussion, and valuable resources. This is more than a workshop with a talking head --- this is an event planner’s “brainery” 🦉💕titled, "How to Successfully Add Corporate Event Planning to Your Wedding Business." And, it will empower you with the tools you need to get started right away. When you are finished, you’ll be able to immediately implement everything you’ve learned to go after those 5-figure and 6-figure contracts. And, once you earn them, you will be able to lead these events like the boss that you are!
Check out the link below to register. I look forward to seeing you on January 11th!
