On behalf of the ISES Austin Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you and share some of the many benefits of being a part of our chapter of the International Special Events Society. It is my sincere desire that you will take full advantage of all that our organization offers and enjoy remarkable professional and personal growth.
We are dedicated to providing the most impactful and relevant educational content needed to succeed in the special events industry. Through a combination of respected local talent and renowned speakers from around the globe, we bring the experts to you at our monthly educational meetings.
Have you ever wondered what your colleagues think about a particular issue? Join our “Power Lunches” and be a part of candid conversations on a variety of topics facing our industry. These roundtable discussions are the perfect opportunity to share ideas and experience in an effort to elevate the entire Austin events community.
It takes a village…to produce a successful event. Each month we host a free, networking happy hour at a local bar or restaurant. We work hard and play even harder and these events are the melding of both. Grab a drink, grab a seat and grab a colleague or two and build your professional network.
Each year in June, ISES Austin hosts an annual gala where we acknowledge the superior efforts and achievements of our members with the ASE Awards. The Austin Special Events Awards are a symbol of peer recognition for extraordinary vendors in more than a dozen categories.
If you are looking to fully immerse yourself in the vision and direction of the ISES Austin chapter, than joining one of our committees is undoubtedly the best path. Our organization is only as strong as our membership and we want you to get involved. Everyone has something to offer to the chapter and we hope that you will share your knowledge and experience so that we all may grow and flourish. Programs & education, communications, membership, special projects, allied partnerships, political action committee and so much more.
When you join ISES you become part of an international community of event professionals. Whether it be a colleague right here in Austin or a member of a chapter on another continent, you are connected to them. You will be amazed at the openness and enthusiasm of your fellow members and their willingness to share ideas with you.
ISES Austin has partnered with Make-A-Wish of Central & South Texas in an effort to utilize our membership’s talents and resources to make a positive and lasting impact on local children and their families. One hundred percent of the proceeds from our annual holiday party go directly to support the programs of Make-A-Wish. In October of 2014, our members will come together and sponsor the wish of a very deserving young girl living with a life-threatening medical condition.
