President's Report

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to each and every one of you for participating in an evolutionary year!  The organization continues to grow and evolve and I'm so grateful for all the contributions you've made to our charitable giving program.  During FY 16-17, we collected donation items and cash contributions to benefit the following organizations and causes:
In addition, it is my pleasure to acknowledge the countless volunteers that have supported our committees and Board of Directors.  YOU ARE ILEA!  Watching each of our committees grow and flourish is amazing, thank you so much to the volunteer hours that go into running our association.  The 'get involved' and 'give back' mentality runs deep in ILEA-NCC and I'm so proud to be a part of it!

In closing, congratulations to our chapter's FY 16-17 recipients of their CSEP (Certifed Special Event Professional) certification:
You are now a certified expert in special events and we are excited to see what's ahead for you both.  You've raised the bar for all of us!

Stay Evolutionary,
