Hello Charlotte NACE!

We are in full swing of the dog days of summer, with weddings, reunions, conferences, and social events keeping us all busy!  I hope you can find time to enjoy a nice vacation, barbecue, or just some lazy days off for a staycation.

 June’s program was a big hit as our annual joint NACE/ILEA networking mixer at the beautiful new Embassy Suites Uptown.  A special thanks to the hotel team that hosted our program with Southern hospitality!  In our 5th year, this annual networking event allows us to catch up with old friends and meet new networking contacts representing a broad spectrum of professionals within the events industry.

 We are gearing up for our annual NACE Experience! Conference in Houston Texas.  It will be held at the brand new JW Marriott in downtown Houston and promises to be a spectacular time!  The dates are July 16-19, 2017and the Charlotte Chapter will once again represent with over 12 attendees!  If you can’t make the conference, be sure to attend our August program, which is our annual Experience! Conference recap.   See you there!
