Message from President

Dear ILEA Hampton Roads Members and Future Members,

Cheers to another year of creative and unique events! Thank you to everyone who has contributed their time and efforts to build the Hampton Roads event community to what it is today. It is a privilege to collaborate and learn from an area full of diverse professionals. Together, our different talents drive the special events industry forward.

I ask you to commit to giving back to this community. Whether you are a seasoned professional, or a student, your knowledge and talents are valuable. There are several committees that exist within this organization, and are the fastest way to connect with your peers. Serving on a committee will help stregthen your relationships within the Chapter and beyond, while showcasing your talents. Let us know how we can connect you to a committee that piques your interest today!     

The next year will be filled with educational meetings and networking opportunities to connect and learn from one another. The education brought to you during our monthly meetings will open the doors to new networks and deeper understanding of our industry. I hope the meetings will provide new information and continue to empower each of us to find new opportunities to collaborate creatively together. 

I look forward to serving the ILEA Hampton Roads Chapter this year and work alongside our Board of Directors. We hope to see you at a meeting or event soon!

Emily Miller
