Lisa Perez

Lisa Perez, sales manager for the Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau, was awarded the President’s Award from the Society of Government Meeting Planners MOCAP Chapter at the organization’s Education Training and Annual Awards Program June 9 in Jefferson City.

The President’s Award is a special tribute given to someone for an extraordinary personal contribution to SGMP. The award is given at the discretion of the president and does not have to be given each year.

“She stepped up when she needed to,” said Annette Wallace, president of MOCAP. She jumped into each project with both feet, and spent countless hours working with me on special membership situations that could have been detrimental to our chapter if not addressed and resolved in a timely manner.”

Lisa joined SGMP in 2013 and just finished her first two-year term on the MOCAP Chapter Board.
