The mission at NACE is to support the catering and events industry by educating and investing in our community.
Educationally, we have a Signature Speaker Series, where we provide speakers for the members of NACE to attend in person or online all over the country. The foundation also offers grant-based investments in our chapter by providing high-quality educational programs at the local level. Along with merit-based scholarships that give the opportunity to connect scholars with a mentorship program. We hope to build knowledge and connections that will have an impact on the careers of all members forever.
As the Programming Chair, I will be creating fun and educational events for Chicago NACE members. These events are what helps financially support and meet our goals and I am filled with joy that I can be apart of this foundation!
Along with living an eco-friendly lifestyle, I have recently joined the Green Wedding Alliance this past year. I am excited to say that I have taken a role with the organization as the Membership Committee Chair!
We are a group of professional wedding and event-related vendors helping clients in the Chicagoland area find environmentally friendly companies to work with. Our goal is to connect a growing community of environmentally and socially responsible event vendors with our customers that share the same views. We currently have over 50 member vendors and are continuing to grow. If you are looking for vendors for anything from rental & decor to gifts & favors, we would love to help supply you with the most eco-friendly products and services.
As the membership committee chair, I help with the application process of companies who wish to join our team! I get to connect with companies and venues that are interested in joining our team by helping them with our application process.
I’m so happy to be apart of this community and work alongside other eco-friendly companies!
Throughout the tour, there were many beautiful touches to the newly designed Post Office, but my favorite was the Vault room. There was a real spindle wheel handle that showed the authenticity of the Old Post Office. On the ceiling, you could even see the brick from the original post office, which I thought was a great way to incorporate the old with the new.
If the old-style vault doesn’t interest you, they also added bocce, pool, and a wrap-around bar right next to a beautiful view of the Chicago River.
These features of this event space are just fabulous and I can’t wait to see some events in action! I was told there might even be an opening of a rooftop bar… that is, if we will ever get through this winter!
It was such a pleasure to apart of Elizabeth and Mark’s special day!
