Letter from the Chair - Q2 2023Wednesday, June 07, 2023
Greetings from the road!
Time flies when you are having fun! I can’t believe my two months exploring the globe are almost over. So much more to see.
I want to give a big shout out to Mark Shadwick and all board members who have been working hard on our programming during my absence. Last week, our second virtual Coffee Convo was a success, thanks to all of you who joined and engaged. Stay tuned for additional dates and topics. Our first volunteer day at DC Central Kitchen went really well, and we look forward to seeing even more volunteers at the next opportunity to do good.
Our June educational Luncheon this Friday will speak to many meeting planners and partners. The panel will discuss how to make the most of your event space and overcoming challenges including construction during your event, fragmented housing or event space, geographic obstacles, lack of airlift, and many others. We know it’s summertime, the kids might already be out of school, and/or this might be the day you work from home, but it will be worthwhile to attend and network with fellow colleagues. Register today.
Make sure to mark your calendars to join us in person or virtually for the Chapter’s education and networking sessions for the second half of 2023.
We are also bringing back our Member Spotlight because everyone deserves some time in the limelight. You can read more about it below.
I look forward to supporting the Chapter in person again. In the meantime, enjoy the Summer and stay well!
Your IAEE DC Chapter Chair
Claudia Maurer, CEM
