President's Report

WOW, were you at our sold out Gala?!  Our annual gala fundraiser always helps put everything into perspective, and really showcases how lucky we are to have partners, not competitors, and teamwork, not rivalries.  It was a night to remember, and the most fun I’ve had all summer.  Thank you to the 50+ sponsors and the wonderful Gala Committee who brought the Wanderlust concept to reality! 

Our ILEA NCC board of directors is having a team retreat next week where we’ll be planning for the year ahead.  Do you have any feedback for us, or ideas on what you’d like to see in the months ahead?  We’d love to hear from you!  Always feel free to email me at  

2017 ILEA NCC Board

Our committees are also coming together and starting to plan for the year.  This is a great time to get involved and join a committee!  Our committees are Membership, Communications, and Education & Programs.  Email to get involved and learn more.

A few of us are also attending the ILEA Live leadership sessions in Calgary.  We’ll be meeting with our Western Region leadership to go over our goals for the year, and we’ll also be spending a whole day with the international board of governors as well as ILEA leaders from around the world.  Follow along on social mediaAugust 9-12.

Don’t forget to follow your dreams, work hard, and get things done!
