Dear Fellow IAVM Members:
Summer is beginning, and the excitement that is VenueConnect is drawing nearer every day. I hope you are all planning to attend as this is one of the best ways to make connections with other professionals in our industry, obtain new information and training, meet with vendors who are exhibiting on the tradeshow floor and much more. If you have not yet registered for VenueConnect, now is the time to do so as we are only about 7 weeks away from the event! When you register, I also encourage you to register for the Foundation Golf Tournament and for any of the many tours and activities offered for your pleasure on Sunday.
There are also numerous sponsorship opportunities available. We have opportunities for sponsorships to the golf tournament and various Foundation programs. This is an excellent opportunity for you to spotlight your business to your customers.
As you may know, the Foundation Silent Auction will take place on the tradeshow floor again this year and is looking better than ever. This year we are happy to announce that the Silent Auction will be brought to you by Spectra, our title sponsor. To make this Silent Auction even more spectacular we need your help in providing auction items to the Foundation. The auction is only so good as the items we have to offer, so please consider providing something from your venue or an item that people might be interested in. Please contact Kathryn Eades with questions or to donate.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all in Toronto!
Stephanie Curran, CVE
Chair, IAVM Foundation Board of Trustees
