New England Federation of Humane Societies
Project Description: In 2019 I was hired as New England Fed's meeting planner. Each year the NEFHS holds the largest animal welfare conference in New England. This event regularly attracts as many as 400 attendees and nationally recognized speakers. Throughout the year, NEFHS also hosts outreach events, both in-person and online, on a variety of topics of interest to New England's animal welfare workers.
COVID caused the outright cancellation of the New England Fed's annual conference in 2020 and the organization pivoted to a virtual event in 2021 for which I researched and evaluated more than a dozen virtual meeting platforms.
- Site selection including research, inspection, contract negotiations
- Research and evaluation of virtual meeting platforms
- Support online and in-person events as needed
