July 2018 Print

Message from the President

Dear ILEA Hampton Roads Members and Future Members,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you all for making the July meeting a success! We were thrilled to meet so many new industry partners and look forward to spending the next year getting to know each of you. As Antony Bonavita stressed at our meeting, relationships are the key to your future success. I urge you to get to know one another, become a member of ILEA (if you haven’t already) and serve on a committee as a way to give back to the community that helped shape each of us.

With that being said, we are looking for enthusiastic members to join a committees for the next year. Your diverse talents are what make ILEA HR an exceptional organization, and we would love to help you showcase your strengths. Please reach out to myself or a Board Member so we can get you involved!

We look forward to seeing you on August 12th at the Virginia Zoo for the return of ILEA Hampton Roads Family Day!

Emily Miller
President, ILEA Hampton Roads Chapter
