Last Friday, April 7, our McNamara events team joined 300 Twin Cities event professionals at Minnesota Meetings & Events magazine annual Best Of award celebration. McNamara received the 2016 Editor’s Pick award for “Best University Venue.” Editor Bobby Hart created this award for McNamara based on “his own personal experience at McNamara and feedback from the MME board and staff.” McNamara’s onsite caterer D’Amico Catering won “Best Caterer” for another year-yay! As the leader of our event team for all 17 years that the alumni center has been open, I like to say that our team is McNamara’s most distinguishing characteristic. I receive an average of 150 applications for our jobs which allows me to hire the best of the best. I have high standards and hire only those who enjoy delivering superior customer service to clients. In 2016 our small team of 7 people facilitated 860 events and received an average customer service rating of 4.92 out of 5.0. I am very proud of that fact. Kudos to our team!
