“The Foundation of NACE Speaker Series has been the biggest life saver for our chapter and me, as Director of Programs. Coming out of COVID we felt education needed to be a top priority to keep members engaged and the Speaker Series made that possible. It is a really daunting task to find good, knowledgeable and powerful speakers…especially when so many have left the industry, but the series made it so easy! We have utilized 3 separate speakers and they have all been amazing. As I pass the baton to another Programs Director, I plan to mention this tool from the beginning so our chapter can keep moving forward. PLUS I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the added bonus of the potential to earn an educational grant for using the series. We are so thankful for this tool to improve our chapter!”
