ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter: President's Message
I am honored to serve the members of the ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter as your President for the 2018-2019 year. This year’s Board of Directors is an exceptional group of Special Event Professionals and I am certain that this will be a year full of Education and engaging experiences.
While serving as your President of the ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter, my focus will be to assure that every decision made as a Board will be based around what will benefit our members most. Our vision for the 2018-2019 year will focus on the following:
Educate. Continued education is important in a consistently changing industry. In order to become indispensable professionals in our industry it’s imperative that we are striving to become the best in our craft and that we work everyday to learn something new. This year we look forward to bringing you exceptional speakers and content to help cultivate new ideas and trends in the industry. With that being said, we want to hear from you, our members. We want to know what topics you’re interested in hearing more about. We want to hone in on our members professional needs and plan to continue to survey you at each meeting so that your vision and your voice is being heard.
Engage. I challenge you at every meeting to go up to someone you don’t know. Connect with them. Meet them. Learn not only what they do, but learn who they are. I see this year full of effective networking events that will continue to build new and old relationships. Continue to nurture these relationships, make sure to refer each other and act as a level of support for other industry professionals.
Experience. I ask you to experience the ILEA Greater Philadelphia way. Get involved and join a committee, make your voice heard and share your valuable experience with the fantastic group of leaders stepping up to serve you this year. Experience the friendships, the leadership and the Members Only events. Experience the unconditional support. Experience the celebrations as you hit career and personal milestones. Experience what we have found to become our second family.
I ask you to get involved and join one of the many committees this year and I look forward to seeing you at each upcoming meeting! I promise to help you make the most of your membership and look forward to a great year!
President, ILEA Greater Philadelphia Chapter 2018-2019
