We have exciting news…as many of you know 32 of our fellow Chapter members traveled to Scottsdale in July for the annual NACE National Conference. The week was filled with educational programming, new industry trends and some pretty amazing parties.

Tuesday night was the final main event and the Awards Gala. DFW NACE is proud to bring home the Educational Program of the Year award for our etiquette program in August 2014.

“Proper etiquette is essential in fine dining and business and the DFW Chapter focused on all three during their August 2014 meeting. Featuring a six-course meal with wine pairings and an Etiquette expert as a speaker, the attendees left enriched with knowledge and blown away by the experience.” Written by NACE Board Member LeeAnne Rodgers with the help of Julian Leaver, CWP and 2014 Co-Programs Chair Lauren Eck our opening statement perfectly described this amazing night.

Our monthly programs take a lot of work to plan and they wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our local board and vendors who come together. The DFW NACE Board starts planning the monthly meetings a year in advance and we strive to make sure they are educational, fun and trend setting. It takes a village and I am so pleased that other Chapters around the country recognize the talent that Dallas Fort Worth has to offer.

It was an honor to receive the EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM OF THE YEAR award and we could not have done it without our Vendor partners like Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, LaTavola Fine Linen, Bella Acento, Dr. Delphinium, Top Tier Staffing, Southern Fried Paper, POSH Couture Rentals, Simply Music, Center Stage Entertainment, The Mamones and BEYOND. Thank you all for your contributions.
