President’s Letter: With Gratitude This Holiday Season
Tuesday, December 19, 2017
With the holidays upon us, it is the perfect time to take pause and thank you for being a member of ILEA and an important part of the events community.
As live events professionals, ILEA remains a special place to come together as colleagues. We are members of a strong, durable community that is respected in our industry, and we have exciting and important work ahead to build the future success of our association. I would like to thank each of you for your many contributions to our organization, and to one another, as many of you work together to produce high-quality live events. I also want to thank all of you for the compassion and support you showed to our members and the live events industry in times of need, including the members, chapters and communities who have been impacted by hurricanes, shootings and wildfires this past year.
Of course, the holiday season is also about spending time with those you are closest to. With that in mind, I am hopeful that each of you are able to take some time to rest, reflect and renew.
I look forward to seeing you at The Special Event (TSE) in late January and Catersource in February, where ILEA will have a booth and ILEA Approved sessions.
I wish you a happy holiday season and New Year.
ILEA HQ wishing you a wonderful holiday from Chicago!
Until next time...
