SABR’s Deb Jayne selected for SPIN event-planning honors

Deb JayneDeb Jayne, SABR’s Membership and Events Director for the past eight years, has been selected as a recipient of the SPIN:Senior Planners Industry Network 40 Over 40 awards. This initiative was created in 2017 to recognize and honor senior meeting planners who are industry role models, influencers, innovators and pioneers.

This year, despite the 40 Over 40 moniker, the association has chosen to honor just 28 individuals.

“This is an evolving process and we changed some of our criteria, focusing more on giving back, innovation and accomplishments,” explained Tracey Smith, SPIN’s Executive Director. “While we had many candidates, the ones chosen best represented the qualifications we were looking for.”

SPIN’s Founder, Shawna Suckow, added that this year’s honorees excel in innovation and truly giving back. “They’re helping the next generation learn from their examples,” she said.

The award winners will each receive two complimentary registrations for SPINCon 2019 (one for the honoree, and one for their nominator or a fellow qualified planner with 10 or more years experience), and will be recognized at the conference in a ceremony among their peers. SPINCon 2019 will be held Nov. 3-5 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey.
