ILEA's [Virtual] 30th Anniversary Party!

When:  Jul 16, 2020 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM (PT)
Associated with  San Diego Chapter

We invite you to help us celebrate 30 years as ILEA San Diego, your local chapter of creative event professionals in a global community!

Enjoy surprise entertainment, commemorate the past 30 years with our founding leaders, Annie Revel, CSEP, and Pat Pfohl, and give recognition to our incoming 2020-2021 Board of Directors. We wholeheartedly applaud our ILEA members and industry friends that have actively participated in ILEA through the years, as volunteers and attendees-- we wouldn't be here today without each and every one of you. An event association is only as successful as its relationships, and now more than ever, we need each other. Therefore, our virtual program will conclude with a "Cheers & Chat" Happy Hour: join your colleagues in our randomly assigned breakout rooms (two 15 minute sessions) for some much needed networking with new and familiar faces. 


 3:45pm | Pre-show Performance
4:00pm | Main Program

For those fortunate enough to be financially sound, we ask that you please consider donating to our chapter (during the registration process).
