A little background information on the Free Member Events:  ISES Indiana won and received $2,500 at the ISES Eventworld General Session in Dallas, TX in August 2012 for increasing our membership by 25%. As a part of the ISES 25th Anniversary Eventworld Celebration, there was an award opportunity for all ISES chapters to earn $2,500 for a 25% increase in membership over the ISES 2011-2012 calendar year. We are thrilled to say that ISES Indiana was one of two ISES chapters in the world to receive this award for this excellent accomplishment with an approximately 28% increase in membership last year! Great job to the ISES Membership Committee and a very special thank you to all of our members for your continued support toward our ISES Indiana Chapter!

Making the Most of your ISES Membership!

You talk the talk…International Special Events Society can help you walk the walk.
Think about it. Does a day go by that you don’t in one way or another “sell” others on the value of belonging to your organization? No doubt, that’s because you believe in the power of belonging to a professional organization. So do we.

We are betting that you work to live, not live to work. Being good at your job is important to you, but so is having balance in your life. That’s an enviable goal, but not always easy to achieve. We can help.
Take a minute and go through the items enclosed in your ISES membership packet. You will find that making the most of your membership is easy as 1…2…3.

1. Determined to work smarter? With more than 5,000 members from all types and sizes of special events organizations throughout the world, ISES membership can give you a running start on any project you embark on or problem you need to solve.

2. Is convenience a consideration? We know that it is not easy to get out of the office. That’s why we offer a number of member benefits designed for the time-pressured professional. ISES’s state-of-the-art web site – www.ises.com – keeps you in the loop.

3. Seeking solutions? We believe our job is not just telling you what we think you need to know, but helping you find solutions to your everyday challenges. We offer numerous other resources for solutions.
