Relocating from Las Vegas, NV to HARDI headquarters in Columbus, OH, Maguire brings extensive Event Planning experience including ten years at MGM Resorts International.


There were several great candidates out there, but Dana had the complete package including experience working in the hotel industry. Adding her perspective and knowledge to our event planning process will help us make sure we are making the best decisions for our members and the association moving forward. Dana has already hit the ground running and will be at our two Summer events; the Summer Social and Emerging Leaders Conference where she will be supporting the events execution and meeting our members” says Director of Marketing and Sales, Chris DeBoer


With the recent COVID-19 restrictions decreased by the CDC, the hiring of Maguire comes at the perfect time as in-person events begin to ramp up again. Maguire is also certified in hybrid events, bringing a new area of expertise into the changing world of events. She will be supporting HARDI with event planning and logistics following the retirement of Eileen Mantel.
