President's Report

As spring is wrapping up, I want to wish everyone a very successful summer season.  Please remember to take care of yourselves, and take advantage of the expertise of your fellow NACE members to collaborate and produce memorable, flawless events. 

I would also like to share some board updates. 

  • Andy Bomberger, Corporate & Catering Sales Manager with Whitney Peak Hotel and Chapter Vice President ,will represent our Chapter at the 2018 NACE Experience in Palm Springs, guaranteed to be the perfect blend of creativity and connections.  If you cannot attend, he will be your eyes and ears on all the newest products, trends and procedures presented at this gathering.  Please join us in August at the Hard Rock Hotel Lake Tahoe for a recap of this event, learn about what you missed, and what new tricks you can apply in your endeavors. 
  • We are continuing our 10th Anniversary celebration with the help of Lyndsey Bunn, Catering Manager with Peppermill Resort Spa & Casino and Chapter Website/Social Media Director and Kenny Sedgwick, Account Manager with West Coast A/V.  They are creating a video that will capture the spirit of our chapter over the years, and inspire us to grow in the future.  Send Lyndsey your “WhyNACE” story, or reach out to them if you wish to be included in the video project. 
  • A huge thank you to our Chapter Program Directors Jennifer Jones, Senior Catering Manager with Peppermill Resort Spa & Casino and Beth McBride (formerly Bach – congratulate her on her recent wedding), Sales Director with Roundabout Catering for producing our monthly events.  It has been great to see the interest and participation!  Send them your program ideas or reach out to them if you wish to highlight your product of service. 

The board welcomes your comments and ideas.  We are committed to serving our members and providing the outstanding benefits of NACE!
