    President's Report

    Hello NACE family,

    I hope you all are happy and healthy! What do you think of my new work clothes?  Thinking we might ALL be walking around in these if the rain doesn’t stop soon!  I do like a good yellow accent piece.

    Our January meeting did not disappoint!  Our annual CADES (Catering and Design Excellence) awards program recognizes the people we work with all year long for the amazing job they do and how they give back to the chapter.  It was a beautiful event at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.  Special thanks to them and our other sponsors for making the event a success: Bunn DJ Company, PSAV, QC Catering, SnapHappy Photos, Carolina DJ Professionals, Creative Events, Party Reflections and Artisan Ice. It was a festive night celebrating all the nominees!

    We also had 6 of our board go to the annual Evolve Conference this January in Dallas.  We learned a lot about the importance of memorable moments!  We are all very excited about bringing this back to our membership. 

    If you missed the announcement, we will actually be hosting the Evolve Conference in Charlotte in 2021!  Keep your eyes open for emails about how to get involved through the Foundation of NACE.  They are the ones that host and select venues and vendors but we can get you all the details on how to get your name on their list!  We know our membership will want to showcase just how royal the Queen City is!

    I am very excited about the upcoming LUNCH meeting at the Jazz Club on February 18th where we feature some of our own, Megan Applegate and Taylor Kyte, talking about career development and resume building.  Thank you to all the sponsors that are working on the event to make it a success.  We appreciate all you do.

    Don’t forget to go to and sign up for all the meetings we already have planned for the year.  I look forward to hugging you when you arrive.

    All my best,

    Jenna Morrow
