From September 26th through September 28th Eric Speier, of 5 Elements Entertainment, and myself, Steven Caudillo, attended the International Executives Association (“IEA”) Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina as representatives of our Long Beach chapter. During the IEA Conference, Eric and I attended seminars in different areas. Eric focused on learning more about the IEA app which will give anyone access to all our members within the IEA community. Our Execs profile will be updated with new membership information and will be connected to the IEA app. On my side I participated in discussion groups to learn more about the greater IEA and the business connections it provides. There are 46 chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada. Some associations are small and there are others as large as 200 members. I met with other Executive Directors during those three days and found that they have the same concerns we have in our chapter (i.e. memberships, referrals, and involvement). Suggestions were brought up on how to improve these issues like member only events, professional speakers, and public events like mixer which we just finished.
The IEA Conference gave us an unique opportunity to connect with our other members from all across the globe and build relationships for future referrals and leads. As a reminder, if we ever need a referral outside of our chapter you will be able to find another business through the greater IEA and the IEA app.
Additionally, on Thursday, October 4th, we hosted our Fall Mixer which was originally promoted as Long Beach’s Largest Mixer across multiple publications, social media and flyers. There were about 275 future leads and relationships that came through those doors and we made over $1,100.00 from raffle tickets. If not for all of your participation and your donations it would not have been such a huge success! Thank you again.
