Events Committee


The Events Committee develops and carries out the chapter’s events in accordance with goals and guidelines approved by the Board of Directors. The events are planned to promote professional development and allow membership the opportunity to grow their professional network. The events are a key source of exposure and credibility for the organization, and provide a substantial portion of IndyCREW’s annual revenue, therefore a variety of programs should be established each year that will increase both member and guest attendance. Committee members are tasked with brainstorming event ideas, reaching out to speakers and venues, and coordinating the details of each event.
