A Word from A Member

Hello from Texas! I am the Executive Director for the Nacogdoches County Exposition & Civic Center. In August of 2024, I will celebrate 21 years with the county. In addition to being a multi-functioning community event center, our facility serves as an Emergency Evacuation Shelter as well.   In my capacity as Executive Director for the venue, I also wear the hat of Chief Coordinator for our PRCA Rodeo and our five-day County Fair.

Only being a member of the League since 2021, I still consider myself a newbie, compared to some of the other members who have been on the scene for nearly three decades. I must admit, attending my first Symposium felt like I had walked into someone else’s Family Reunion, where I knew no one. Naturally, I was a bit intimidated. League members from across the US were visiting and catching up with others on how things were going. What I was witnessing was networking in a relaxed social environment.  Something we all can appreciate! In that moment, I made a decision to get the most of my membership by getting to know the friendly faces I was surrounded by.  It didn’t take me long to start making connections and building my own relationships with members. It has been such a pleasure getting to meet other facility staffers. These are people I can call, email or text for advice anytime I encounter a challenging situation.  Because of my membership with the League, I have gained confidence through friendships and education & knowledge from professionals in our industry. There is so much I love about the League, including the annual Symposiums and getting to tour other facilities. I always know I am always going to return home with a refreshed mindset and ready to take our venue to the next level.
