September 2017  


NACE Members and Friends,

As we all watch the aftermath and assist in the recovery of so many cities in South Texas, our hearts and prayers continue to be with those affected.

This month we are working to bring in relief efforts to all our NACE events. I know many of you are working on doing the same. Keep us posted on what you’re doing and how we can help get the word out. We’ll post updates on any outreach efforts by our chapter as well.

October is our great, big, Members Only, complimentary event which will include the STATE OF NACE update and Board Elections for current open positions. I encourage every member to consider where you’d like to take your membership in 2018. Whether it’s joining a committee, running for the board, or applying for a conference scholarship, we all know you will get the most out of your membership by being involved.  I hope to see some new faces in these important committee and board positions.

Check out more details on this month’s activities.
