July 2017  

President's Report

Hi There, Tiffany Carrion, your Orlando NACE Chapter President. Coming off the heels of our June Wedding Meeting hosted in conjunction with ABC, and moving into July’s NACE Experience Conference in Houston and our Annual Chapter Community Service Project with Knights Pantry, and then into August for our Joint Industry Showcase with ILEA, I couldn’t help but to revisit the theme of collaboration. We are stronger as a community when we are passionately serving with those who are motivated by the same things we are. In special events, it is all about finding a team, be it employees or vendors or even clients, and building meaningful relationships with those individuals and companies to execute the vision. Too often we attempt to take it all on ourselves, when in reality, we need the collaboration to be most successful and to have the greatest impact. Don’t sell yourself, and those you serve, short by not being part of the team. We are so blessed within NACE to have a network of amazing professionals and when we partner with other Associations like June and August’s meetings and even with other Chapters, like the Experience Conference in just a few short weeks, we are building a strong more unified community and THAT’S what it is all about! Thank you to all of our Members and Sponsor Partners for your collaboration with NACE throughout the year. You are NACE and the definition of collaboration.
