About Steve

At Kinsley Meetings our company is built on three pillars – Knowledge, Involvement & Fun.  For almost 18 years I have had the good fortune to work with my wife and a great team on a daily basis to share our knowledge, be involved in our industry and have fun along the way, with our customers, our wonderful team and our industry colleagues.  We are a full service meeting & convention planning company based in Littleton with offices in Savannah, GA, and Gig Harbor, WA.  We serve both association/society and corporate customers with programs ranging from 25 to 6,000.  Outside of the fun at the office, and on the road, I enjoy playing golf, fly fishing and cooking.

Questions:

Why did you want to be become a volunteer for MPIRMC?

In all the places I have worked I’ve always been involved in some sort of community or industry service outside of my ‘job’. When I changed careers from hotel GM to meeting professional, and went to work with Allison, it made perfect sense to join MPIRMC as Allison was already a long time member and very involved.

 

How did you become a Volunteer?

I asked where we needed help! My first volunteer involvement was with our fun run. I think that was the last time we held it ☺ .

 

What is your best MPIRMC volunteer experience?

Wow, so many good ones. I think the best one was VP of Finance and working with Freddie and Keith to make sure each year that we were in the right place moving forward.

 

What advice can you give a member that might be apprehensive to commit to a volunteer role within our organization?

Why wait? In all the roles I have been involved with over the years I always got more out of volunteering than what I put into the position. New friends, new colleagues, and new customers. And Fun!

 

How many volunteer positions have you had through MPI? Which position did you enjoy the most and why think?

I have held 5 or 6 official volunteer positions. Along the way I have been involved in the fun run we used to sponsor, communications, the golf tournament, VP of Finance, President, various other committees and now a table host. They have all been enjoyable.

What keeps you motivated to volunteer?

A few things – first and foremost, the people. Every meeting I meet someone new, that is always fun. Secondly, involvement keeps you engaged in the industry outside of your job, which keeps you at the leading edge of our industry, learning new things. And finally, the opportunity to serve has always been part of my DNA, and I enjoy using my experience to assist others in their journey in the hospitality & meetings industry. I will always have coffee with someone seeking information or advise.

Someone’s in the Kitchen With…Kinsley Meetings

January 25th, 2017 by

Due to a Colorado snow storm, the Kinsley Team celebrated our 2015 Christmas Party in October 2016! We headed downtown to STIR Cooking School where we created our very own Kinsley Cocktail and designed our very own individual pizzas from a spread of different ingredients.

The Kinsley Cocktail

Ingredients:
  • Vodka or Bourbon
  • Orange Juice
  • Simple Syrup with your favorite spices
  • Cranberry Sauce (and not the jelly out of a can, the real stuff)
  • Champagne

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1.5 oz of your choice of Vodka or Bourbon and 1.5 oz or orange juice. Then add in 3/4oz of simple syrup with your favorite spices – we used cinnamon and nutmeg. Add as much cranberry sauce as you like – the more you add, the sweeter it is! Then shake! Pour into a wine glass filled with ice and top with champagne. Voila! The Kinsley Cocktail.


Some of our favorite pizza concoctions:
  • Madeline – Goat cheese, caramelized onions, spinach, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and ham
  • Nikki – Steak, goat cheese, spinach, onions, and mushrooms
  • Andrea – Pineapple and ham
  • Megan – Garlic butter sauce with spinach, goat cheese, pears, and bacon
  • Erin – Herbed butter sauce, pear, bacon and goat cheese
  • Vanessa – Marinara sauce, extra cheese, all the pineapples (just kidding, but not) and sausage on a thin crust pie
  • Stephanie – Cheese, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, goat cheese, and red peppers
  • Steve – Garlic oil, caramelized onions, goat cheese, roasted garlic, and Italian sausage (bad breath afterwards!)
  • Julie – Sausage, goat cheese, peppers & TONS of green chile 🙂
  • Endsley –  Garlic butter sauce, goat cheese, Brussels sprouts, grilled onions, and Italian sausage
