Yes& adds a new Event Manager, Elizabeth Richards to the stellar team.
Elizabeth joins our team as an Event Manager with 13 years of experience. Prior to enhancing the team at Yes& she worked as the lead Event Manager for the VCU Health Office of Continuing Medical Education, where she organized and executed more than 30 conferences per year. At the start of her career, she worked on the marketing and creative team of a boutique law firm. There she found her passion in planning events, and chose to pursue her Certified Meeting Professional Certification (CMP), which launched her into the association world.
She brings extensive insight to our government clients from her time with the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), where she orchestrated conferences across the United States for an array of audiences in the defense industry. Her creativity, government-protocol knowledge, and extensive experience was instrumental to this year's AFCEA Winter Gala.
Elizabeth's determination and dedication are essential assets to the star players we have on our event team. Her collaborative personality and inclination to investigate new avenues for creativity are qualities that make her the ideal professional for our clients and inspire her to take on unexpected challenges. Even outside of the workplace Elizabeth is a born trailblazer. This year, she plans on walking the Camino de Santiago and traveling the world to feed her intellect and expand her innovative arsenal.
