Guernsey. A couple of days ago Tony Carey, a colleague and friend of many in the meeting industry, sadly passed away. He was a presenter and consultant to the meetings industry and a member of the MPI United Kingdom Chapter.

Bruce MacMillan, CA, MPI President & CEO send a message out to the community: "Today the meeting community mourns the  passing of Tony Carey, CMP, CMM. Tony, a familiar face and voice around  the globe, transitioned from a career as a meeting organizer to become a  prominent speaker and consultant. His insights, wisdom and, perhaps most  notably, indelible sense of humor were widely enjoyed and lauded. Tony served on  the International Board of Directors for MPI and wrote for several industry publications, winning multiple awards in his role as an MPI columnist (including  a national U.S. honor awarded just this week for his One+ column Across  the Bow).

He will be missed. We’ll share further details on arrangements and his family’s wishes as soon as they are available. We know  many of you have many wonderful memories of Tony, and we invite you to share them on a blog that I started today. We will pass these on to Tony’s family as a tribute to his  long and distinguished career with MPI".

If you want to condolence to Tonys family, pleaseplease log in to CIMunityand leave your message in the group "Good bye Tony Carey". We will forward them to his family.
