I’d like to start by saying THANK YOU for the privilege and honor of leading this amazing organization for the 2019-2020 season.

ILEA has been a major force in my life over the past 6 years. It has helped me grow my business exponentially, expand my knowledge and experience in the special events industry, and most of all… it has given me a second family of professional, down-to-earth, fun-seeking people that ROCK the events world!
As a member of the Board of Directors since 2015, I can’t express how much of a transformational tool it’s been for my personal and professional growth. If you are thinking of joining our organization, I urge you to do so immediately! Join now, stay engaged, and network with the worlds leading special events professionals.

ILEA is the most exciting organization of its kind. Our members know how to have fun while keeping it real when the pressure is on. Work hard, play hard!

The theme for this season is ILEA ROCKS because, quite frankly, it does! I’m so excited for this year. We have an amazing team that’s going to take this chapter into the Roaring 2020s and we invite you to come with us.

Thank you to the new Board of Directors, let’s do this!

Matt Gucu, 2020 President
