Welcome to our first newsletter for 2018!  Words cannot express the honor and excitement I feel to be your NACE South Florida Chapter President for a second term.

We started this year off with “Let’s Motivate!” At Wynwood Walls on January 16, 2018.  Our Motivational Speaker, Devin Burke, gave us helpful tips to start off the new year without all the brain clutter. Sponsors included Wynwood Walls, Wynwood Parlor, Over the Top Rental Linens, 900 Novecento, Café Ala Carte, Chef David Schwadron Cuisine and Event Design, Christie’s Photographic Solutions, SuViche, and Complete Media.

Our February 20th meeting, “Love The NACE You’re With”, was held at the Embassy Suites Boca Raton. Attendees found new event matches with this fun and energetic speed networking event.  Sponsors included Embassy Suites Boca Raton, Over the Top Rental Linens, Café Ala Carte, DJ TLake, PSAV and Smile Event Photography.

Our March Meeting was held on Tuesday, March 20th at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. This was one of our most exciting and well-attended general events for NACE! We shared some wine together, while gaining lots of knowledge! We were honored to have Professional Sommelier Rémy Bourzade, present this educational event with a unique twist. Sponsors included Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, Black Glass Events, Café Ala Carte, Chocolate Fountains of South Florida, Beautiful Kreations, Over the Top Rental Linens, DJ TLake, and Cheryl & Jay Wedding Photographers.

This past year, we held some amazing events, and we look forward to bringing you more outstanding events this year! As we approach the end of the first quarter,

Looking for committee members to help us plan meetings, work the registration desk, make phone calls, and more. If you are interested in joining the board /committee please reach out to any board member. As a reminder, your committee participation counts towards your CMP or CPCE application or recertification.

Warmest Regards,
Marci Guttenberg
