Update from Executive Director Kevan Stone

Dear NACE Membership:

I wanted to bring you up to speed on some exciting things since we have last spoken. As you may know, we have brought onboard Staci Morgan, NACE’s new Conference and Membership Manager. Staci joins us from SmithBucklin, the world’s largest association management firm, and her sole client was the Regional Airline Association. Her conference and membership campaigns are most impressive, and we are fortunate to have her be part of the NACE family. You should already be seeing Staci’s work, as she has collaborated and organized the past two NACE News blasts and earlier this week you received our digital “save the date” for NACE 2019.

Speaking of NACE 2019, I am pleased to report the preparations for our annual conference are in full swing. Staci will be heading out to Wichita next week, following up on the work I began on my visit there earlier this summer. We cannot give enough thanks to Darryl Lutz and his host committee team on the ground in Kansas. Darryl and his team have put in countless hours in planning for our time in Kansas, and their precision and professionalism cannot be understated. Wichita is a vibrant and energetic city. You and your family are in for one heckuva conference. Don’t forget to check out our conference site, which you can find here.

Finally, I wanted to follow-up on something I mentioned in my introductory note to you this past Spring. As you may know, NACE has doubled its social media efforts to promote our organization in policy circles as well as letting our federal and private partners know the good work our organization is undertaking. Already, we have been retweeted by members of the United States Congress, bringing greater visibility to NACE, the nation’s county road professionals. This, however, is only half of the intent for our social media efforts. Through our Twitter page, we can promote the work you are doing in your communities. We can’t do that if you don’t participate! Our Ohio members have utilized social media very successfully, and you have no-doubt seen NACE publicizing the good work they are doing each week. Additionally, our cover page is a project undertaken in Alabama, sent to us from our members for all to see. Twitter not your thing?  No problem! Simply send us the pictures of your work with a brief description and we will promote it for you!  Why keep your good works and great ideas to yourself? Let your fellow members and infrastructure principles take stock in the work you do that save lives, create traffic efficiency and allow your communities to grow. If you are on Twitter, remember to follow us, our handle is @engineersNACE, or you can access our page here. Don’t forget to tag us!  

I hope you enjoy this edition of NACE News. If there is anything our team can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Enjoy your week,
