Meet the Board

Your Board of Directors is working hard on some great programs for next year! This year's board retreat was held at the beautiful Scottsdale Plaza Resort, where the board worked on the annual budget, new program ideas and locations and did some team building. 

Your Phoenix NACE  B.O.D. is a strong cohesive group that works hard to insure that NACE members learn something from every event while showing the hottest trends in food, beverage and decor, and frankly, let local caterers show off what they do best; Food! 

The board dinner was at the Mission at Scottsdale Kierland, where the chef showed off her culinary talents with an eight course tasting menu that blew our socks off! 

If that doesn't want you to get involved with the Phoenix NACE Board of Directors, I don't know what does! Contact any board member for more information.
