MCOR22 Caucus: Tackling Critical Topics with “Peer to Peer” Solution Discovery

Last year’s inaugural caucus format was so well-received and beneficial, we’re bringing it back for MCOR22! We’ve identified — and will be carefully dissecting — some of the most pressing issues and business-related hurdles across the multi-course and golf resort operations landscape.

The floor will be open for candid attendee engagement: Grappling with hiring and other labor issues? Worried about the economic outlook? Seeking clarity on emerging industry trends? What business issues are critical for you at this moment and keep you up at night?

There isn’t always a “one size fits all” approach to these issues so there’s no better audience than our experienced, influential MCOR22 attendees. The MCOR22 Caucus is YOUR chance to share YOUR real-world experiences, best practices, ideas, strategies and solutions for challenges facing your golf business peers.

JUST ADDED: United States Senator Roy Blunt (R- MO) will join MCOR22 virtually from D.C. at 3:30pm ET to conclude the MCOR22 Caucus! Senator Blunt serves as the Chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee and as the Ranking Member of the Senate Rules Committee. Hear his thoughts on the current economic climate, potential legislation on his radar, and other policies and programs coming soon. Be there to engage with a sitting US Senator and hear what’s happening… direct from D.C.!
