As I sit and write this message, we are in a much different place than we were a year ago. Many of us are considering returning to offices that we left almost 18 months ago on a moment’s notice and we are looking forward to re-connecting with co-workers and friends in a way that we haven’t experienced in a long time, establishing our “new normal”. While all that has changed, one thing that hasn’t is our connection through ICE. While many of our activities have been virtual, the work of our committees has been ongoing to ensure that our programming and our opportunities to leverage our relationships across the organization are as strong as ever!
We are well in the midst of planning for our second (and hopefully last) fully Virtual ICE Conference in October. We have leveraged the learnings from last year and your feedback to raise it up a level and make the most of our time together. We hope you will enjoy the world class speakers, roundtables, and most of all, networking opportunities! This will be a tremendous opportunity for us to renew our connections and make new ones with our members and our Premier Partners, Sponsors and Exhibitors to hold us over until we are once again able to join together in person.
The Board and I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to “seeing” you at an upcoming event in the near future!
