|Message from the Board Chair continued. . .|
The meeting was highlighted by a direct, focused, lively & facilitated work session led by Janee Pelletier of our partner Conference & Logistics Consultants, Inc. It was great to walk out with clear directives & work plan that will insure the continued growth & success of our annual Conference & Exhibition.
We finished the day with a great Baltimore 2018 conference kick off meeting led by Bernie Berry of Wolf Trap Foundation. Reps from the Washington Nationals, Wolf Trap Foundation, Baltimore Orioles, Moss Arts Center, National Aquarium, Washington Ballet, D.C. United, Ticketfly, Imagination Stage and Smithsonian Enterprises. What a great group they were & so many gathered to meet, talk, laugh and start their planning. If this dynamic and lively discussion is any kind of indicator then INTIX will have a great time in Baltimore.
The Search Committee & SearchWide are deeply engaged in the process of identifying a new CEO/President. Candidates are being vetted & will be interviewed in the next weeks & then a final shortlisted group of candidates will be presented to the Board. The process is on track to hire a new executive in the Fall & to have them on staff by November.
If you haven’t already, be sure to renew your membership now! Also, remember to look for your notice when Registration for the 2017 Conference begins in early September. A great New Orleans Conference is being planned as I write this. It promises to be a great and valuable educational and networking experience.
The Board of Directors, the officers & I wish you all a safe and enjoyable remainder of your summer. We are at your service and welcome your thoughts, emails, calls & dialogues with members. Let us know what you are thinking and what you need.
