What a year 2019 was, and I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for us!
We successfully closed out 2019 with our Women’s Leadership Experience at Expo! Expo! in December, hearing from an amazing keynote speaker and a panel of industry achievers who shared their experiences, challenges and successes. As part of the committee for the past few years, I continue to be amazed by the hard work and commitment of this amazing group of women who continue to support our initiatives.
Personally, I love the collaboration that face-to-face meetings and events creates. It always provides a wide array of opportunities where I can set goals, challenge myself, learn, build new relationships and share ideas.
As you start off your year, I encourage you to do the same. What steps can you take to strengthen your skills, connect with your peers, build your network, support others and get inspired?
IAEE’s Women’s Leadership Forum is the place to do just that. With the signature event in April and additional regional programs in February, July and September, we have something for everyone, from coast to coast! These events sell out quickly, so secure your seats now before it’s too late.
Finally, and most importantly, I would like to share my appreciation for last year’s Chairperson, Ann Olson, CEM. The continued success of the IAEE women’s leadership programs is a true testament to her dedication and leadership that helped guide us on this continuous journey to create and inspire others. I hope to do the same and encourage others to get involved, show up and support one another, and I can’t think of a better group to work with than this group of amazing leaders.
I am excited to see the continuous strides we make and look forward to another successful year. I hope you will join us!
