I blinked and February was over! March is a very exciting month for our chapter, our members and potential new members! The 2020 NACEYs are just a few weeks away! I love that our chapter gives us the opportunity to come together and celebrate everyone in the event industry while raising money to support our local chapter! 

We had a fun and exciting meeting last week at Willow Oaks Country Club. We had 5 teams compete in the Design Challenge and they hustled to create some awesome tabletops! Make sure you grab your ticket to the NACEYs so you can hear who the winners are! The winners for People's Choice: Best Design, Judges Choice: Most Creative Detail and Judge's Choice: Best Overall Design will be announced during the NACEYs award presentation!


March is an exciting month for those who are considering joining our organization! Our Spring Membership Campaign is up and running! New Members (or former members who have been expired for more than a year) who sign up between March 1st-31st receive 15 months of membership for the price of 12! That's more networking, more education, and more savings! Visit to sign up today! Don't forget to use the online code: Spring20 to save!

On another note, I am so happy to announce that Alli Prato-Carney has earned her Certified Professional in Catering and Events (CPCE) designation! Alli joins a group of 8 CPCEs in our Richmond Chapter and just 350 nationally and gets to add a few extra letters to her name!








I can't wait to see everyone in just a few short weeks under the big tent!

Jamie Adams, CPCE
2020 President
