President's Letter

“ Wow, what a year! From winning not one, but two, awards at the national conference to launching a new website for our members, NACE Austin was busy in 2018. We would love for you to join us on Tuesday, January 15th at Hotel Ella to enjoy an evening celebrating your 2018 Board and outstanding members, inducting your 2019 Board and recapping the fun our chapter had last year! Thank you all for making my 2 years as president a memorable one. I am proud and honored to turn this prestigious role over to your newly elected President, Michele Schwartz!”

- Amber Scott, Outgoing President


“ #AllAboutThatNACE has some true meaning for Austin in 2019.  Our chapter is about to install our 2019 Leadership Team who are all poised to build upon the amazing 2018 year.  We got to work at an amazing two day retreat held at the beautiful Horseshoe Bay Resort in Marble Falls with a facilitator from the NACE National Office.  We’re sending a record eight people to San Antonio for leadership training and we have several people who are committed to obtain the CPCE credential.

We already have several dates for you to save.  Our February meeting on 2019 Trends is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5 for a brunch from 10 to 12.  Our fundraiser, The Amazing NACE is coming back on September 12 and you can start recruiting your teams right now to see who can go up against the Whim team, who won the grand prize last year.  

I’m excited and honored to serve as alongside an excited and inspired team of volunteers.  It’s true you will get out of this organization what you put into it; so, If your ready to get involved on a committee, earn your CPCE or learn about our new sponsorship opportunities I’d love to chat.  

Happy New Year!”

- Michele Schwartz, Incoming President

Thanks for the Support!

We are so grateful for all of the support we receive from our events community here in the Austin area! We could not do what we do without your talent, generosity, and help! We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you again to each and every one of your who sponsored, volunteered for, or donated to NACE in 2018! (And we’re so sorry if we forgot anyone and left you off the list accidentally, we love you too!)
