Meetings today (Coordinated by Lynne Richardson and Victoria deSilvio) and MIE designed this CSR program for the Leonardo Gastelum Villalobos Educational Institution in Cabo San Lucas.  During the     3-day program of Meetings Today Live, planners and suppliers were able to donate dozens of books and needed supplies to the school.  During the donation ceremony, everyone received a warm welcome from the school principals and students who showcased a special performance honoring el Dia de Los Muertos.  In addition, MIE donated 2 chrome books to the Principals of the AM and PM class sessions.


Heroes de 1847 elementary school in Los Cabos is in constant need of improvements.  Principals, teachers and parents try to keep the school beautiful and clean according to their possibilities with the few resources they receive to keep their children in a comfortable and harmonious environment.   MIE along with a food distribution company selected the school to assist with changing the constant problem of graffiti to the outside of their building.  MIE coordinated with local Mexican artist Alfredo Sosa to portray his art, having the students help him to complete these art pieces along the outside school wall so grafittiers won’t paint over them. Alfredo starts by going to visit the different classrooms to talk with the students and asking them for different aspects of their environment and lifestyle, to obtain the inspiration to create different master pieces.  MIE is proud to work and support art that involves CSR activities by helping the local community and teaching students new and correct ways to express their art.


Meeting Incentive Experts, in partnership with Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) and 23 Classic participants, donated 1,500 backpacks with school supplies to all students of Leonardo Gastelum Elementary school (750 attend the morning session and 750 attend the afternoon session).  The faculty are trying to make the school a place of refuge where children feel proud and can further their education.  “There is great importance of supporting these children with limited resources so they can fulfill their dreams as they are the future ambassadors of the destination” commented Amanda Nemeth, MIE President, CIS, CITP.  The school was selected due to the increase in classroom size and need of the community, which, was greatly affected by Tropical Storm Lidia 2 weeks prior.
