HASHTAG SYNC-UP More than ever, social media plays a vital role in keeping our community connected. We're using these hashtags: #eventstrong #meetingstrong #eventprofs FRUITFUL DISCUSSIONS The Canadian Society of Professional Event Planners (CanSPEP) Lemonade Stand—a series of member- hosted Zoom phone chats—has become a go-to for industry folks looking for support and education during the pandemic. Generally speaking, Monday's theme is Find your Blessings, Wednesdays focus on education and professional development and Fridays are a check-in for members only. "The feedback has been fantastic," says Sue Mercer, principal of Step In Marketing & Event Solutions, based in Toronto, and this year's vice-president of marketing for CanSPEP. "CanSPEP is a unique community: while we're direct competitors, it doesn't feel that way. We all have different things to learn from each other." CanSPEP is committed to continuing the series through May, with the possibility of extending it further.

Not wanting it to go to waste, Sunwing partnered with Canada's largest food rescue organization, Second Harvest— who recover nutritious, unsold food and redistribute it to various social service organizations—donating more than 46,000 meals to 17 communities across the country. Also working with Second Harvest, Air Canada and the Air Canada Foundation donated 14,118 kg of food items, the equivalent of almost 31,000 meals. Together W E ' R E I N T H I S WATCH THIS The Ignite team has been inspired by all our colleagues who have sought to better themselves professionally and personally during this time of upheaval. We've compiled a video of our endeavours (seems a lot of us wanted to better our dogs too!), as well as a resource page of recipes and links that we've found useful. 10 | Ignitemag.ca
