    Beyond expectations

    We had the pleasure of working with one of the UCC's private event directors, Pam Monnier. For about a year she helped us plan our day down to the most minute detail. We really came to Pam with just a vague vision and she turned that seed of an idea into the most amazing reality. The detail in the decor (the handwritten chalk board messages, the table names, etc) was just beyond any expectations we could have had. Every one of the staff members at the UCC was just spectacular. They were friendly, attentive, and generally just superb to be around. Oh, and the food. Oh. My. God. I was blown away when we did our initial tasting and the day of quality was equal. Just top notch. You cannot go wrong with the UCC.

    We had our ceremony & reception here in June 2015 with Kaley as our wedding coordinator and I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding! Kaley was great to work with and always replied in a timely manner. The club was also very flexible, as we decided the week of to change the ceremony inside instead of outside due to the heat. The staff throughout the wedding worked hard to ensure we had a quick change from ceremony to reception. In addition, they made sure that we had everything we needed in order to make our day the best! We decided to choose the stations option as far as food and it was the most delicious food that I have had! I would definitely recommend anyone to the University Center Club, especially to work with Kaley! She helped us remind of little details and made sure that we were there to just enjoy the day!

Pam Monnier

Pam Monnier

Private Event Director

With over 35 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Pam knew early on that a life in the exciting, fast-paced field of resort, restaurant and event management was the life for her. After working her way through college in various restaurant jobs (remember the old Silver Slipper?), she decided to turn her passion into a career.

After graduating with a Business Degree in Hospitality Administration from Florida State University, she began her career working on a 5-star resort on Captiva Island. After five years with the resort, she left for a while to try life up North (aka Atlanta) working for the Peasant Restaurants. At the age of 29, she returned to the gulf coast islands to open a restaurant and catering company on Sanibel Island. This was a fun and exciting adventure, but after 4 years, she sold her shares and move back to the capital city when she met her husband-to-be who was a pilot based in Tallahassee. Happy to be back in her home town, she continued her path in hospitality management as the general manager of the Chez Pierre Restaurant. It was here that she discovered her love of planning special events. She soon took a job at the University Center Club as a Private Event Director. After eight years in this capacity, she decided that with two small kids at home, she should try the 9 to 5 life. She returned to her alma mater as the Director of Industry Relations for the Dedman School of Hospitality where she worked with other students with the same passions as herself. As her kids got older, she yearned to be "back in the trenches" so she joined several other UCC alums at the newly renovated Hotel Duval as the Director of Meetings and Special Events. Other stops along the way back to the University Center Club include projects at Honey Lake Plantation, John Gandy Events and freelance event planning and catering. She is happy to have found her way back home to family and friends at the University Center Club and is enjoying the expanded role that includes the Dunlap Champions Club and Skyboxes.

Over the years, Pam has been fortunate to be able to plan and execute thousands of events of all shapes and sizes. With over 400 weddings under her belt, she is a certified Marriott® Wedding Professional and was the founding President of the Tallahassee Association of Wedding Professionals. She has served on a variety of boards and committees over the years, but has recently decided to slow it down so she can enjoy her family as both her kids start on their college journeys. When she has free time, she loves working in the yard, mixed media art and travels any chance she gets.
