ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter: President's Message
I am so excited to serve as 2017-2018 President of the ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter. We have a well experienced and educated board, and together we are thrilled to provide you with a great year of Education, Programs, and Fun!
While serving as your President of the ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter, I am committed to bring these important elements into each monthly networking and meeting:
I thrive on Education and constantly love to learn new things. I am sure you can all agree with me that our industry is forever changing and we need to stay current with trends to share with our clients. Over the past two years of serving on the board, I have had to the opportunity to meet leaders and engaging speakers all over the United States and I want to help bring them to our Chapter Meetings so you can learn and be as engaged about the Events Industry as I have been.
One of my favorite parts of networking and getting to know people, is making the right connections for myself but more importantly connecting other people together. It really makes me happy to hear how connections blossom into solid working relationships. Being a part of ILEA has really showed me the true value in this and I want to continue to help other people grow their professional relationships.
Good ole Fashion Fun
I am an advocate of fun, laughing, and smiling. It is such a great feeling to be surrounded by an industry that provides me with just that. I hope you come out monthly to experience this with me, and get involved! Getting involved means forming new friends, working together, and just laughing about silly things. We all need this, so why not do it with ILEA!
I look forward to a great year, and please say hello at our next monthly meeting!
President, Greater Philadelphia Chapter
