Welcome From the Chair...

 Dear Colleagues:

 Aah, a new year and a new opportunity for resolutions. According to StatisticBrain, the majority of us make New Year’s resolutions and,  sadly, 42% of us feel we never succeed on our resolutions each year.

 And while that could deter the non-resolvers from joining the resolution bandwagon, consider this: People who explicitly make resolutions  are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don't explicitly make resolutions.

That’s right. 10 times.

So what are some of the most common resolution, according to StatisticBrain, that we could be 10 times more likely to accomplish? How about:

  • Make better financial decisions
  • Do more exciting things
  • Learn something new
  • Improve your job performance (or find a better job)
  • Do more good deeds
  • Spend more time with friends (or make new friends)

Wouldn’t it be great if we could accomplish these goals in an efficient, not-too-burdensome way?

Great news. There is: resolve now to become active in the IAEE SE Chapter.

At our 5 monthly meetings in Atlanta and the Summer Classic in July, you’ll have the opportunity learn industry best-practices, see friends and network with industry colleagues (coincidentally, some of the very same benefits we tout to attendees of our events). Through service outreaches and the Jenny Melton Golf Tournament, you can help give back to our communities. And, you can have some fun.

There’s still plenty of time to kick-off your new, New Year’s Resolution. At our first 2017 chapter meeting, February 23, David DuBois, IAEE president and CEO, will highlight research results that can enhance successes at shows and events.

There’s something for everyone, so mark your calendar and become involved. You’ll be glad you did. And if you’ve already been active in the SE Chapter, resolve to bring a colleague!

Best wishes for a successful 2017,

Dan Darby
2017 IAEE SE Chapter Chair
Vice President, Emerald Expositions
