Trends with Benefits: Acronyms

Published: Wednesday, February 8, 2017 By: Sasha Sook, CMP, Sales and Marketing Manager

JFK (Just For Kicks), I wanted to write an article for MPI (Meeting Professionals International) about popular slang words and acronyms.   AFAIK (As Far As I know) many people don’t know what a lot of these words mean.  I also included some industry terms in case the slang terms are not of interest.  I am hoping you at least understand the Millennials in your office and don’t open the articles that say NSFW (Not Safe For Work).  LOL (Laughed Out Loud)
