Let's Change The World

Let's Change The World


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  ― Margaret Mead


Gathered in comfy chairs at a historic building on our 20th anniversary, it was time to reexamine and realign MeetGreen’s vision and values.  While MeetGreen is a business and legal entity on paper, it is actually a group of professionals who work hard to connect people and make our slice of the world more sustainable.   Without these committed citizens, we have nothing to offer.  We don’t rent rooms, cater meals, or decorate show floors; rather, it is the knowledge and talents of our people that brings value to our clients. 


On this occasion, we asked ourselves and each other what makes it easy to come to work in the morning, what our work means to us personally, and what we believe in. When the answers were shared, something marvelous occurred. From bookkeeper to conference manager to sustainability director, a core set of values emerged, a set of values each of us as individuals felt very passionate about. Seeing the full list written on the board became a defining moment worth sharing:


  • We believe in creating a sustainable future
  • We care about the planet and all of her people
  • We believe in the power of human connection
  • We believe every little bit helps
  • We believe in inspired optimism
  • We thrive on challenges and love to learn
