Get Involved in NACE

Make the Most of Your NACE Membership

Throughout the year, you’ll hear leaders of our Chapter say, “You get out of NACE what you put into it.” There’s no better time to jump in and get involved than right now! Here are a few opportunities available for you to get involved.

JOIN A COMMITTEE

One of the easiest ways to quickly get involved with NACE is to participate on one of our committees. In addition to being directly involved in the chapter’s activities, committee members often appreciate the smaller group settings that committees provide. The Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter of NACE has five committees:

MEMBERSHIP

The Membership Committee is responsible for all administrative and relational activities associated with our members. In addition to recruiting new members and maintaining our current memberships, the Membership Committee works the registration desk at NACE meetings, greeting members and guests as they arrive. For NACE members wanting exposure to the largest number of members and guests, the Membership Committee is a great place to be! Contact membership@dfwnace.com for more information about joining.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

The Community Service Committee is directed by Meghan Phillips and works to create opportunities for NACE members to give back through volunteerism and by collecting donations. In addition to encouraging members to participate in NACE projects, the Community Service Committee strives to increase personal community service participation among our members. To learn more about the Community Service committee, contact communityservice@dfwnace.com.

PROGRAMS

The Programs Committee, led by Co-Directors Molly Rasmussen and Nate Nelson, plans the chapter’s monthly meetings. From securing venues and vendor sponsors to determining each meeting’s focus and structure, the Programs Committee is in charge of the overall content for each meeting. Committee members meet once per month in-person or by phone. For more information about joining the Programs Committee, contact programs@dfwnace.com.

FUNDRAISING

The Dallas-Fort Worth chapter’s annual fundraiser is planned and executed by the Fundraising Committee, under the direction of Jacqueline Hill. Held in September of each year, the event generates funds for the Foundation of NACE in addition to a local or national charity. Committee members meet monthly and have a variety of responsibilities – from securing event sponsors and soliciting Silent Auction items to helping execute the event day details. Contact fundraiser@dfwnace.com to learn more about the Fundraising Committee.

COMMUNICATIONS

Led by Damany Daniel, the Communications Committee is responsible for all marketing and communications efforts of our local Chapter, including the monthly newsletter and social media participation. To join the Communications Committee, contact communications@dfwnace.com.

HOST A MEETING

Do you work at a venue that would be a great spot for a NACE meeting? We’re always on the lookout for a venue that’s willing to showcase its offerings to our members. Our programs committee would be happy to discuss hosting a future meeting at your location. Contact programs@dfwnace.com.

DONATE TO A MEETING

Our meetings are put together by pooling resources of our members. If you have a product or service that would be a great addition to a meeting, we’d love to hear from you! From catering, linens, event rentals, floral, entertainment, photography, and videography, we’re always looking for members that are willing to donate their time and talents to a meeting. Contact programs@dfwnace.com.

DONATE TO A RAFFLE

Most of our monthly meetings conclude with a raffle drawing from prizes donated by our members. Restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, and even bottles of wine make great raffle prizes – the possibilities are endless! If you have access to something that can be raffled off in order to raise funds for our chapter, please let us know! Contact chartwigsen@duckhorn.com.
