The DFW NACE organization has been an amazing group of event industry professionals to be involved in. I had the opportunity to photograph the April 2013 DFW NACE with the panel discussion topic of Understanding the World of Nonprofits.
The panelists include:
Kristi Sherrill Hoyl – Past Cattle Barons Ball Chair and Current Hockaday’s Centennial Co-Chair
Sharon McGowan – Executive Director of Wednesday’s Child
Katherine Mathes Bullock, Owner of Mathes and Co
Kate Kirk – National Sales Director, Fauxcades
Catherine New – Senior Sales Manager, Hilton Anatole
Moderator: The Foundation of NACE Vice President Gary Baumann, CPCE
(This month we have two focuses)
STREAMS AND VALLEYS – a Tarrant County organization that works to keep the Trinity River clean and safe. From their website: “We work on things like keeping the river’s water clean, building new trails, attracting bluebirds and creating master plans that keep all the river’s resources on track. We’ve been doing it since 1971, and 40 miles of trails and 8,000 trees later, we know there’s even more great stuff around the bend” We will be collecting BOTTLED WATER, at the valet entrance for this fantastic organization. If everyone could bring either one gallon or one case of bottled water, it would go a long way in helping Streams and Valleys support their volunteers who help clean up the rivers and parks.
THE FOUNDATION OF NACE – this nonprofit division of NACE works towards enhancing learning and education for NACE members, providing research studies, as well as working with in the community to provide scholarships for students entering our industry. We will be collecting money for the Foundation in our piggy banks to help contribute to their cause.
