I am a big fan of the program but am recently disheartened by some of the changes taking place. I belong to both Marriott Reward and the Meeting Planner program. Recently I was down graded to Silver because I didn't book enough meetings in the given year. Here is the issue. I booked three meetings with very large room blocks including F&B. The value of these meeting was in the range of a quarter of a million dollars, yet because someone books more smaller meetings with a value of say 20,000 they are rewarded with a higher status....this doesn't make sense. When I emailed Marriott about this, I got the same old rote reply. Please look at your program to consider future changes.
