President's Report

October already! Here we are full blown in busy season again. Our clients suddenly realized after the long hot summer that their event is right around the corner and they haven't planned anything. Let the madness begin! Please remember to refer other NACE members when your clients are panicking to find a last minute vendor. This is why we get together every month, to build our relationships and collaborate. That is what NACE is all about. 

Yes, it's that crazy time of year again, and none of us in the event industry will be able to see our families again until next summer as the work load piles up. So take some deep breaths and sharpen your pencils, because here it comes, it's time to GET BACK TO BUSINESS!

With love and gratitude, 

Dawn Peterson, CPCE, Phoenix NACE President

Professional members that have lapsed on their membership for one year or more can also receive the discount.

Renewing Member Offer
Do you love NACE and all that is has to offer? Do you wish there was a way to save on your renewal fee? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then we have a special offer just for you. Renew your professional membership, which is normally $395, on time or before your expiration date and pay only $295. You save $100 off your renewal.
