I cannot express how honored and excited I am to be the president of the Appalachian Chapter of NACE.
One of the multiple things that I am excited about is our chapter’s new grant program. We also have some amazing sponsors lined up for the year that are kind enough to host our meetings. We were able to lower the cost of our ticket admission for all of our networking and education meetings that we will have every month. With these sponsorships we are able to put additional monies toward supporting our community and advancing careers for hospitality and about professionals.
With clients expectations growing being excellent, furthering education, networking, and being a leader is super important. And if we can raise the standard of professionals in our community then we will be able to really show off the Appalachian region on a national level.
