"I always knew a traditional "nine to five" office structure wasn't appealing to me. I love flexibility, variety, and choices. When I started working in the event industry, I found I could make a living doing work that was a lot of fun and was different everyday. Whether it's a different location, role, or brand, it's a rewarding challenge everyday.
Being a member of the AAEP is important for a professional in the event industry. The industry is evolving, so it's important to align yourself with an organization that sets high standards and provides continued learning and development.
Many times event staff receive very little training, sometimes via email or a short training call, if at all. An organization that can provide a training platform is a necessity for the industry.
Holding event staff to the standards that they agree to as members will help agencies and brands differentiate between candidates who have skills and knowledge and not just a long resume.
I'm excited about the AAEP because it's an organization of like-minded professionals promoting high standards in the event industry!"
