105th Annual Convention
March 2-5, 2022
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort
Bonita Springs, FL
ABMA's 105th Annual Convention was held at the lovely Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, Florida. It was wonderful to see U.S. and international friends and colleagues together again after what have been trying times over these past couple of years. We were very pleased to welcome 39 new faces to the group, as well as 2 new member companies, and look forward to building relationships with them all.
The focus of the event was "Recovery" and we had the benefit of learning from Paul Long, a motivational speaker and consultant that has challenged the corporate landscape for over a decade while engaging audiences around the globe. Paul's message, Fundamism is F.U.N.,
is a philosophy that can be defined as the fundamentals of a FUN and optimistic lifestyle. Paul believes strongly that gravitating more towards the things that give you strength, as opposed to the things that don't will provide you more FUN, joy and fulfillment in life.
Members also participated in a Meet The Pros Roundtable event sponsored by ABMA's Emerging Leaders, "Workplace 2.0 - We Are All in this Together." Topics included Managing Communication Mediums, Benefits and Perks for Recruiting, Understanding the 4 Generations in your workplace, New Employee/Employer Interests, Employee Retention, and Automation and Technology in the Workplace -- leading to interactive discussions on these issues that are industry-wide and affect everyone.
The program ended with a Disco reception, complete with prizes for the best outfits, disco moves, and more!
