Madison Network of Black Professionals, Monona Terrace Convention Center and The Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau hosted the 12th annual Autumn Gathering reception.  This year’s event was held on Tuesday, November 24th, 2009 from 5pm – 7pm at the Monona Terrace Convention Center.

Autumn Gathering was initiated twelve years ago as a way for convention sales managers from the Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) to introduce themselves to the business leaders within the African American community.  Over the years, this networking opportunity has grown to include many ethnically diverse business leaders and groups in Madison.

The goal of the reception is for the GMCVB to connect with business leaders who belong to national associations and work through these contacts to bring more multi-cultural association convention business to our destination. 

A huge thanks to our speaker Dr. Damon Williams, Vice Provost for Diversity and Climate at the University of Wisconsin Madison and all attendees for a great event!
