Together Is Better

As we journey toward the end of our chapter’s 2017/2018 fiscal year, I’m reminded of my opening statement in my first President’s Letter last August – Together Is Better. What an AMAZING year our chapter has had together!  I truly believe that our chapter’s creativity and connections are the essence of our ILEA community.  

It has been my joy serving as President of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Chapter over the past year.  I would like to thank the current Board of Directors for their collaborative spirit, invested time and hard work!  Their achievements will continue to shape our chapter’s legacy for many years to come. As we prepare to pass the baton next month to the incoming 2018/2019 Board of Directors, we look forward to celebrating our ILEA MSP chapter’s 20-year anniversary with all of you this fall!  We encourage you to get involved in making a continued difference in our association by volunteering, sponsoring, joining a sub-committee or providing ideas and feedback to enhance our community’s experience.

Until then, let’s celebrate the end of a great chapter year and welcome summer in at our ILEA MSP Annual Summer Saunter on Tuesday, June 19th.  Don’t miss this opportunity to sip, socialize and celebrate with your ILEA industry friends!

Cheers!

Maria

The May program was a HUGE success

The Hutton House a premier, luxurious event venue located just minutes west of downtown Minneapolis hosted 100+ event proffessionals for an excellent lunch program.

Kevin's high energy presentation focused on 5 basic objections to any sale and how everyone can become a great salesperson.
