Vice President of Membership, Scott Pickel of Everything Tented, will also be hosting a brief informational session and orientation for new members to discuss the benefits of ISES membership. This session will begin at 5:00 PM at the same location and is free of cost to attend. You do not have to attend the later event in order to participate in the information session.
Earlier this month, ISES Cleveland Members and guests spent another productive lunch enjoying beautiful and delicious food provided by newly-inducted ISES Cleveland member Pamela Waterman and Duet Catering, as well as a thought-provoking presentation by local ActionCoach Wayne Bergman learning about how a great group of “raving fans” can catapult your business to new heights, why you should spend time cultivating your own garden of “raving fans,” and what steps you as a business owner can take to make your happy clients want to spread the word about your business.
The event was hosted by Scott Pickel and Everything Tented, who set up a tent within their warehouse to allow us all to enjoy the tent experience, despite the cold weather. Sound services were provided by Matt Radicelli and Rock the House Entertainment Group. Linens and tableware were provided by Event Source.
Update: Due to the severe weather and traffic conditions, the Board of Directors is regretful to announce that this event has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you healthy and safe on another day!
We will continue our membership drive efforts throughout this month — please stay tuned for more details!
Please join us tomorrow, Wednesday, December 8, 2010 from 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm at Anatomy Nightclub | Ultralounge located at 1299 West 9th Street in Cleveland for our annual membership drive. We’ll enjoy free food, entertainment by Rock the House, prizes, networking, and more! This event is FREE and open to non-members. If you’re not already a member of ISES, come see the benefits to joining ISES and network with event professionals from the Cleveland area. If you’re already a member, why not bring a guest with you tomorrow night and show them how great the ISES Cleveland chapter is!
In addition to the special prorated value for joining ISES at the event, we’ll be giving away some great raffle prizes just for showing up like Cavs tickets, a night at the Cleveland Airport Marriot with breakfast for 2, and more! Plus, new members will receive a special “welcome pack” with money-saving offers from several ISES Member companies, including $200 worth of products and services from Rock the House, Event Source, and Everything Tented — that $600 will more than pay you back for your membership investment! Can’t come tomorrow night, but still want to take advantage of that great prorated membership investment? No problem! Join during the month of December and get your six month membership for just $199 instead of the yearly $399. Plus, as a special incentive, we’ll also waive the $50 application fee.
