March 2019 ILEA NSC Newsetter


Happy Spring!

As we come off the recent cold snap, the mustards are now blooming in the fields! And the poppies are starting to spring up! Can you believe that Summer (and Event Season) is right around the corner?

The Gala


We are extremely ecstatic that our Second Annual Gala, taking place on Tuesday, April 9, will be hosted by the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone!  The ILEA NSC Programs Team is actively working on our Party of the Year!

We are still seeking Gala Sponsors, so please reach out to Pilar Mustafa, VP - Programs, if you want to feature your Company.  We are also bringing back the Silent Auction and hope that you can generously donate a product or service to the Silent Auction.   Please let us know and visit our Gala Sponsorship page for information.

New Incoming Board

Coming soon, your 2019-2020 ILEA Napa-Sonoma Board Roster will be announced. We are thrilled to have new Board Members and are enthusiastic for what is to come in the 2019-2020 year.  I am very excited to turn chapter leadership over to Madeleine Reid, President-Elect, starting July 1, who I know will be an amazing leader for ILEA Napa-Sonoma!  I will be staying on the Board as Immediate Past President.  

We will see membership renewals starting in May, and hopefully more faces to add to our great community of event professionals with our Membership Drive! 

Get Involved!

Continuing members, I encourage you to GET INVOLVED and join one of our Committees to offer ideas on how to make this a better chapter for our Members. We

would love to see more people on our committees (Programs, Membership, Communications)! Sponsorship is also another great way to get involved! Please reach out to me or Pilar Mustafa for more information!

I hope to see you at the ILEA Napa-Sonoma GALA on April 9! 

You’ll hear from me again in May!
