Reasons to Join

Membership Has Its Benefits
If you want to grow, learn and participate in one of the most dynamic and engaging associations of special event professionals, then ILEA-NCC is for you! Members are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the local chapter – from helping plan meetings to showcasing your products to prospective buyers. Like most worthwhile endeavors, the more you are involved and put into the organization the more your will get out of it!

ILEA-NCC is all about its members. With growing attendance at local meetings we are striving to bring new and exciting ideas – your ideas – to our roster.  Each meeting is not only a chance to network and “get the word out”, but it is also a chance to learn from peers, hear excellent industry speakers and panels, discover new vendor bases, and see what the future holds for our industry.

Here are some of the benefits of being a member of ILEA Northern California Chapter:

Bi Monthly Meetings

  • Networking Opportunities: Meet your peers and industry partners to gain new ideas and industry insights.
  • Education: Local continuing education to improve your career opportunities and enhance your professional expertise.
  • Event Sponsorship: Showcase your brand to the industry in its natural setting (a meeting or social). For more information click here!
  • Prize Drawings: Get your name in front of the industry in a unique way! For more information contact ILEA-NCC at
  • Attendee List: Members can log in to see the attendee list and contact information for all past and future meetings available on the ILEA Web Site.

Participate in running the chapter and really get to know your colleagues and vendors. For more information click here.
