The GMIF and its parent organization, the Green Meeting Industry Council ("GMIC”), are the leading resource for meeting professionals who seek to better understand and prepare for the tough challenges and the potentially transformative opportunities in their immediate future.

“I am excited to be chosen for this position, as I am driven to provide support for research, education, training, and certification on the importance and the practice of sustainable meetings,” said Abernathy. “I look forward to serving the Foundation and building on the good work we’ve already done to date.

As Vice Chairman, Abernathy will be responsible for making the GMIC “brand” more recognizable, and will spearhead fundraising efforts for GMIF so that they can provide scholarships and education about sustainable meetings to planners and others in the events industry.
