If you work in the events industry then you are probably familiar with an organization called ILEA. If not, ILEA stands for the International Live Events Association. I joined the organization when I worked in Austin for a while and then transferred over to the chapter in San Francisco after I moved to the Bay Area.
I've enjoyed every second of being involved in this organization. There are so many educational events, happy hours, and networking events to attend. I've met so many amazing people in the industry who are now my closest friends and work partners. I've always been a fan of not only joining organizations, but becoming hands-on involved in the organizations.
This year for the ILEA NCC Gala 2016, I took on the Graphics & Marketing Chair position. I've never lead a position like this before, but I thought, what the hell? I could not have done it without my Graphics & Marketing team. It was my first time meeting this group of people, and I had no idea what their background & experience was. We would meet every month to discuss ideas and execute with each of our individual strengths. Probably by the second meeting, we became best friends! I loved this group and still meet with them just for fun. The event turned out incredible and we, of course, had a blast!
Like I said, I always recommend joining organizations and becoming involved. Whether you have experience in the committee or not, you will have a team to support you along the way. I've shared a couple images below from the Gala this past year, but feel free to check out the whole album on ILEA NCC's Facebook page.
