Meeting Recap

The November NACE meeting began a bit earlier than usual to allow for some bonus fun following - more on that later. We gathered on the patio of the C.W. & Modene Neely Education & Event Center at the Phoenix Zoo. One of the Zoo’s many event spaces! Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were enjoyed prior to dinner. The buffet dinner was delicious.


The program: Stepping Up Our Social Game was brought to us by Holly Zoba from  An interesting and very practical piece of advice that she shared - based on one of her customer experiences - was to always read the entire article before sharing it! The customer was a hotelier and shared an article that ultimately encouraged the reader to look to other types of properties for their special event. 


Following the meeting family and friends joined members on the patio to grab a hot cocoa or coffee/cappuccino before taking a somewhat chilly (by Arizona standards) stroll through ZooLights! The displays are stunning and so much fun for all ages!
