Representing FORUM in ISES – International Special Events Society

I have the privilege and honor to be a part of the ISES – International Special Events Society – board for 2015-2016 as the Director of Communications.  ISES is an international organization with 53 chapters for event industry personnel.  According to the ISES of Indiana website, ISES is “centered around providing education and networking opportunities for those in the special events industry.”   I am very excited to get to work with this wonderful group of vendors (most of which are recommended vendors for FORUM) to bring some really unique events to the Indianapolis area.  The board is made up of some of the most talented event specialists in the area.

Rachelle and I went this year which we previously blogged about – it was a wonderful display of many local talents in the same room!
