"Working with Custom Meeting Planners to get our teachers registered to go to conferences is an absolute lifesaver!  Tammy and the rest of the staff work with us to make sure we have everything in order without much effort on our part.  Custom Meeting Planners is a joy to work with--I look forward to conference time each year!"

"For the past several years I have had the opportunity to work with the team at Custom Meeting Planners on several conferences that staff from our school district have attended. I have always found them to be extremely helpful, courteous, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to help resolve any issues or answer any questions. They are a very professional organization and it has been a pleasure working with them."

Billie Defreise, Executive Assistant
Wentzville R-IV School District

"I have worked with Custom Meeting Planners directly for about six years now. I have organized staff for various conferences and workshops and at times it can be tedious. Custom Meeting Planners has made my conference planning for our district nearly effortless! I can email or pick up the phone and I always know that I will feel like I am chatting with a friend. They understand the stress of organizing large groups and their guidance and attention to detail has been exemplary. I would highly recommend CMP to any organization that is planning an event. Their attention to detail, as well as their professionalism is second to none!!!"

Lucy Swailes, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent
Warren County R-III School District

"CMP is part of our team and does everything they can to create a successful experience for the attendees, the committee and the vendors. Their calming presence ensures the conference runs smoothly due to such great customer support. CMP is always able to handle the surprises that arise by identifying the needs and presenting solutions (even willing to learn new skills to complete a task). Tammy’s great work ethic and willingness to do what needs to be done with specific attention to detail and knowledge in her field ensures a positive experience throughout the process, establishes low costs and enhances our conference success each year.Positive attitude from all CMP employees with great relationships and reputation throughout the community. Tammy establishes exceptional open and ongoing communication and is sensitive to the needs of attendees, the planning committee, the hotel and service industry."

"Midwest Conference on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse (MCPGSA). The Midwest Consortium on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse (MCPGSA) enlisted the services of Custom Meeting Planners in 2013 to provide administrative and conference planning services for the annual MCPGSA conference. Since then, the success of the conference has depended, in part, upon Custom Meeting Planners’ expertise in effectively managing event logistics with the hotel, menu planning, travel and lodging coordination for speakers, and administrative services at registration and throughout the planning process. Enlisting the services of Custom Meeting Planners has been the best investment the MCPGSA has made!"

Carol Spiker

"Our association has been working with Custom Meeting Planners since 2006 and previous to that with Jamie in another position. We are different than many of the groups that Jamie and Tammy work with in that we bring in not only national level speakers but international as well. Custom Meeting Planners has aided us in our ability to do that and has been a major factor in MTCCCA growing from under 500 members to well over 700 during that time period."

Dean Hays, Executive Secretary-Treasurer
Missouri Track & Cross Country Coaches Association

"My first experience with Custom Meeting Planners was when I served on a committee for the MO Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) for the long-standing Pathways Conference. New to the DESE, I observed the confidence the veteran committee members felt in both Jamie Schieber and Tammy Bagley to organize and coordinate the Pathways Conference. Therefore, when I was given the task to bring the Powerful Learning Conference, supported by the Missouri Professional Learning Communities Project (MO PLC), under the management of the DESE, I felt certain I needed the services of Custom Meeting Planners to assist in this new endeavor."

"From the moment we began the journey together, we received not only high-quality professionalism in the art and skill of conference management, but we also felt the personal care and concern Jamie and Tammy give to each event and to the people involved with the event. Through months of planning, Custom Meeting Planners made us feel that "our" conference was the most important event. They masterfully walked a fine line of attending to every detail, yet making sure the conference committee felt ownership in every decision. They welcomed open and perpetual communication, and there was never a question or task they were not willing and able to tackle. The Powerful Learning Conference of 2009 was truly a most rewarding event for the MO PLC Project, and I am confident that our guides and companions - Custom Meeting Planners - made the expedition enjoyable as well as tremendously successful!"

Mary Ann Burns, Director of School Improvement Initiatives
Department of Elementary & Secondary Education

"Custom Meeting Planners has provided conference services for Missouri Staff Development Council for a number of years and has proven to be extremely valuable. They have saved the association a great deal of money from their negotiations with the various vendors and hotel services where the conferences were conducted. Missouri Staff Development Council is grateful to Custom Meeting Planners for their hard work, their professionalism, and their continuing support in all of our endeavors."
