Charlotte Davis is a certified meeting planner who has been involved in the meetings and special events industry for more than 30 years. In 1988, she took her visionary talents, entrepreneurial desire and commercial and government acumen to offer a total resource for all meeting and event needs at budget-friendly pricing which resulted in the conception of Event Source Professionals inc.

Charlotte has also devoted many years to serving on numerous boards within the Meeting Industry as well as non-profit organizations within her community. She has been recognized by many of these organizations with the most recent "Shining Star" award representing Colleyville Chamber of Commerce given by the Arts League in 2007.
