In 2022 the Annual Meeting will return to be LIVE and IN-PERSON once again! And this year we want you to take a look because it may be in a book or in a movie…the theme for 2022 is Happy Ever After. A theme encompassing your favorite story book, fairy tale, myth or something inspired by any of the above. Yes! That means if you want to stroll in as Belle from Beauty and the Beast you’re welcome to! Or even Professor Moriarty from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (or even Sherlock fame)! Villains, heroes, heroines, anti-heroes, or even the plucky side kick are welcome! And if you don’t want to dress up that’s okay too!

 The event will be held at The Olmsted (3701 Frankfort Avenue) at 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

$65 per person

Table Sponsorships are back! This is a great opportunity that enables you to decorate one of the tables at the Annual Meeting to showcase your business using promotional items and logos while also highlighting an aspect of Happy Ever After (a movie, a book, a character(s), etc.) as the focal point of your decorations.

Gifts and promotional items can be given to each guest sitting at your table. Think of your table sponsorship as a marketing opportunity that attracts new customers.

Table Sponsorships are $150. If they purchase tickets, sponsors will not be assigned to their own tables. There will be a contest for the best decorated table. The winner will receive two tickets to each Inspire program in 2022 ($240 value).
