Jodi Collen, director of event and conference planning at Augsburg College, recently was quoted by the Associated Press in an article that also was published by ABC News and the Boston Herald. Collen’s input and expertise was sought due to her role as the president of the International Special Events Society, a professional organization for event planners. The article discusses the trend of using live animals at holiday events, an initiative that makes sense from an event planning perspective, according to Collen.
Professor of Economics Jeanne Boeh recently appeared in a WCCO television story about the holiday shopping season, which is shortened this year due to Thanksgiving’s late date. Visit the WCCO website to watch Boeh’s contribution to the story, “Holiday shopping advice: Don’t shop on weekends.”
