President’s Letter: June 2011



This past year set the stage with a new vision for ISES LA. The individuals on the

Ronn Hobbs, 2010/11 President

2010/2011 Board were hardworking professionals that went above and beyond. They put in countless hours meeting, planning, forecasting, pondering, decision-making and producing to position ISES LA as an association that is relevant and responsive to our membership.

Sincerest thanks to Sue Cook, Fred Willis, Leonard Neil, Jeff Sigler and Erika Breitkopf for their passionate leadership and dedication to ISES this year, and in some cases several years. As these board members step down we can only look forward to seeing them at monthly meetings and hope that they continue their work on committees. As the President, I appreciate every member of the board more than you can imagine…thank you.

The 2011/2012 Board will transition into leadership on July 1, 2011. With great excitement and anticipation, ISES LA welcomes our new Board members:

Danny Bergold | About Entertainment

David Esqueda | Dazian Fabrics

Melissa Navarro | Lawry’s

Stacy Ober | Pasadena Convention Center

These professionals will join an incredible group of returning board members who decided to put forth the time and effort of board service for another year. Together, we recognize the effective groundwork established and hope to build upon that in continuing to position ISES LA as a true help to the Event Industry and our members during these challenging times.

Programs like the member-to-member discounts we hope to expand as an “ISES LA Marketplace” where any member of any industry association can redeem our ISES LA member’s coupon…and expand this to all Southern California ISES chapters. The outreach to bridge a relationship with many event industry associations is a continuous effort. The burning desire to bring our members unique and relevant education and programming that will translate into better business practices is and has always been an ISES LA cornerstone. Innovative and effective programming with new and exciting activities is targeted as important and worthwhile by the new Board.

All in all, there is so much to look forward to next year. It will be fun, educational and profitable. Your ISES LA 2011/2012 Board invites you to join us.

Ron Hobbs

2010/2011 President, ISES LA
