Ann Olson, CEM | Vice President of Client Relations | GES
It’s that time of year where every individual reflects on their accomplishments, their challenges and their gratitude. I personally have many blessings that I am grateful for. There are many things and people that have enriched my life, and being part of IAEE and chair of the Women’s Leadership Committee is one of those blessings.
As I reflect on our 2019 year, I celebrate our accomplishments and want to share my appreciation for these fellow peers, strong and compassionate women in our industry who work hard to bring education and inspiration to other strong women in our industry. Their insights, hard work and collaboration are what make our programs a continued success, and this year, we have had a lot of them.
IAEE staff, Marsha Flanagan and Stacy Riddler, you continue to build this community, this initiative and advance the learning of so many women in our industry. We thank you for all you do!
I look forward to seeing you at Expo! Expo!, especially on Tuesday, 3 December from 8:45 AM – 10:15 AM for the amazing Women’s Leadership Experience with Betsy Allen-Manning and a phenomenal panel discussion of industry women.
Mark your calendars for The Women’s Leadership Forum on 27-28 April 2020, as well as the regional programs, back for a second year after much success! Registration will open soon for various programs, so watch for updates after Expo! Expo!.
Finally, a big thank you for allowing me the honor to serve as chairperson of the committee. Building friendships and strengthening our community has been a blessing and a rewarding and humbling experience. Safe holidays ahead, see you in Las Vegas!
