Make the most out of your membership by joining a committee!

In order to get the most value out of your membership it is important to become involved in the day-to-day activities of the chapter. As they say, you will get out of your membership what you put into it, so be sure to take full advantage of your investment!

We understand that everyone’s ability to participate will be different and we are working hard to find different opportunities for all different levels of time commitments. Take the opportunities that are available to get involved, even if you can only commit a small amount of time! 


Many of our board duties are quite extensive and often require the help of additional committee members. Do you have an interest in helping develop some of our monthly programs? Do you like to create social media content or have a background in graphic design? We need help on a variety of our committees including:

The goals and objectives of the communications committee are to develop a cohesive branded message in tandem with ILEA International Headquarters by disseminating information locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. These goals and objectives are accomplished through the utilization of tools such as the ILEA Minneapolis – St. Paul Web site, newsletter, e-mail and various other media outlets. The committee is also charged with reaching as many current and prospective industry members with informative and timely information and news with regard to the Chapter and the special events industry.

Help recruit, retain and re-engage current and new individual members, organizations and corporations supporting the chapter. The committee also works to increase overall membership, member diversity and monthly meeting attendance and participation through various programs and activities.

Plan monthly meetings by scouting venues and partnering with suppliers and sponsors. Work to develop programs that contain educational and networking opportunities for ILEA Minneapolis – St. Paul members.

Participate in the planning and managing of the annual ILEA Minnesota Star Awards. Sub-Committees for the Star Awards include Design and Decor, Marketing & Public Relations, Awards and Entries, Catering/F&B, Audio-Visual, Sponsorship and General Event Management.
