Please provide a summary of the program:


Our Alamo NACE founder, Becky Hermanson, along with longtime legacies Tina Sturchio, and Caryn Hasslocher will be speaking on the evolution of our chapter, the growth of our industry, and their adventures over the years.

What went well in the program? What didn’t?:


Transition period for the board lead to lack of strong oversight for this event

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t:


Very clunky execution due to layout and caterer chose a “choice of” menu that significantly delayed service and did not match the goals of the event itself. The NACE pins for members and the gifts for the legacies was a big hit.

Please provide a summary of the program:

Delores Crum, CFRE, NACE Austin Legacy Award Winner for 2017 started off our programatic year with an inspirational talk entitled, “The Why and How of Getting In Touch with Your Inner Child & Dee's Top 10 Inspirational Minutes - 10 Quick Thoughts that will Inspire You to Reach New Heights in 2017”

What went well in the program? What didn’t?:

Our biggest stumbling block was with not being able to begin set-up at the venue until shortly before the meeting began, limiting our ability to decorate as we would have liked.

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t:

The speaker was amazing. Concensus was Delores should speak at the start of every year. There was such positive energy in the room. And, the theming was fabulous!

Sadly, we would have liked to have about 20 more people in the room. Our transition to getting the word out with new board members in place should have been better.

Please provide a summary of the program:

A social media strategist gave a talk on the 10 Biggest Social Media Blunders and How Not to Make Them

What went well in the program? What didn’t?:

Advertising for the program started about a week late and attendance was low. Also, the venue was not able to provide what we normally ask for in terms of service within our budget and we had trouble securing a dessert sponsor.

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t:

The event was great. The speaker was entertaining and the information was very applicable. Everyone seemed very engaged. There was disappointment over the lack of alcoholic beverages.

Please provide a summary of the program:


The program took place at a NACE member’s bar and private event space, Igby’s in downtown, Cincinnati. It was free for members and only $10 for non-members.

What went well in the program? What didn’t?:


Although this was mostly supposed to be a “member appreciation” event, we had more non-member than members show up. It was difficult to get all the board members to attend, since we typically take the month of July off.

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t: The venue is very hip and chic. Everyone enjoyed the light appetizers and the complimentary drink. It was difficult to network, as this is a popular happy hour spot and was pretty noisy. We still managed to raffle off some great prizes and have good one to one networking.

Team Building

Please provide a summary of the program:


The program took place a very unique venue, The American Sign Museum. The museum is home to (thousands?) of iconic signs from the past. Some are from local restaurants and establishments that have shut down, others have been collected from junk yards and restored to their original form. The museum had recently expanded to include event space which help funds the museum. Attendees teamed up to complete a scavenger hunt throughout the museum.

What went well in the program? What didn’t?: The program was well-planned and we had a great turnout. There was some miscommunication about whether or not we were going to have a speaker in addition to the team-building activity but was cleared up early in the planning process.


What went well during the actual event? What didn’t: There were many attendees who had not been to the venue previously. The venue managers did a great job and sharing more about the space and giving tours. Everyone seemed to enjoy the scavenger hunt activity but afterwards, everyone was so spread out and disbanded. We should have set a time for everyone to report back and review answers so we could have formal closure to the meeting.

Please provide a summary of the program:


The program topic was “What you Need to Know about Hosting an Event in a Ballpark” and took place at Great American Ballpark. Guests received a tour of the rentable spaces within the ballpark and got a feel for which spaces work best for weddings, corporate and social events.

What went well in the program? What didn’t?:


The program was very well-planned and many people were interested in having the meeting at the ballpark because it was a very different event than we are used to having for NACE. The ballpark had remodeled since I had last been there and added some different spaces geared towards corporate events while there are no games at the ballpark.

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t:

It was difficult to have a registration area but everyone who got there on time, got to tour the spaces. The reservable area where we held our meeting was an intimate place where we all could network and enjoy the game at the same time. Since there was a game going on, there never was an opportunity to make announcements and have a real beginning and end, like in a normal meeting.

□ Other (Please describe):

Please provide a summary of the program: The guests were put into groups and had to create, prepare, and "sell" their recipe and sample to the judges. They then decided which group had the overall best food, presentation, and salesmanship

What went well in the program? What didn’t?: Everyone had a great time learning about the process and working with the DU Students to learn and prepare their dishes. It was a little chaotic with all the social people and getting everyone to get where they needed to be logistically. Overall, it was a great event.

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t: Everything ran smoothly and for the most part everyone listened to the students and instructors. Everyone had a blast and it was the most energetic the group has been during a program in a while.

What went well in the program? What didn’t?: MPI planned most of this event and worked with the NACE Programs Committee to design a lunch program that would allow both organizations members to collaborate during the networking portion. The even ran smooth and was on time and everyone was engaged and pleased with the event. The only drawback was a few of the sponsor booths had a hard time working with the hotel to keep stocked and replenished for a larger than usual group.

□ Fundraising
□ Community Service
□ Other (Please describe): This was our annual awards gala

Please provide a summary of the program: The event introduced the members to different types of cultural events including Indian Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Quinceaneras, and Asian Weddings. The room was set up with different “stations” that included traditional décor, activities, and information about each.


What went well in the program? What didn’t?: Everything went well with the program as the attendees were split into groups and did a “round robin” to all of the different displays and participated in the activities at each. This event was hosted out of the Denver area which caused attendance to be lower than usual.

What went well during the actual event? What didn’t: The event went very smooth and everyone enjoyed the different activities including temporary henna, creating the perfect mitzvah, and learning more about the other cultural festivities.

Please provide a summary of the program:

" A great whiskey, like a great story, is meant to be shared. "Join us for our June Tasting Program, "Like A Fine Whiskey”.We will be Tasting a few Colorado made Libations from Laws Whiskey, paired with Cuisine bites by HALYCON, A hotel in Cherry Creek and Learn about the process behind making Whiskey, and Why tastings are always in Style. Shari Bundy, marketing and brand ambassador for LAWS Whiskey, will share why most whiskeys are an acquired taste and some whiskeys acquire more taste than others. Take note, because part of being a top event professional is knowledge behind the products at events

What went well in the program? What didn’t?: The program was well attended at one of Denver’s newest hotels. The whiskey tasting went a lot quicker than planned so there was time then planned for additional networking at the end. The speaker was very informative and engaged the crowd, but talked really fast so it was a little hard to keep up.



What went well during the actual event? What didn’t: The guests were only given 1 drink tickets for an hour and a half of networking which upset several guests because there was not even water available. There weren’t any cocktail tables so it was very difficult to eat, hold a drink, and network at the same time. Once the event started there was limited food available and it was concerning due to the amount of alcohol being served.
