Dear CETA Members,

2017 is shaping up to be a year that will see our organization continue to move forward in the direction we have established over the past few years. Continued growth in both the attendance of our annual trade show and the exhibiting members shows the strength of our organization. The implementation of programs such as CETA Certification and Manufacturers Benchmarking are certain to be beneficial to our membership and create interest.

As with any organization that is growing, it leads to greater responsibility. CETA is no exception. During my time to speak at our Business Meeting in Chicago, I emphasized the need for people to get involved. In order to keep our existing programs moving forward, and being able to implement new ideas, we need membership to support us. Each year the Board of Directors loses talented people due to terms expiring. The duration of a Board members service is 3 years, and each year we need to replace at least 3 people. The need for fresh faces and ideas is a yearly void that we need to fill. If you enjoy attending our annual trade show, or the benefits that we have for members, I urge you to get involved. We are on the right path in regards to the momentum that CETA has gained over the past few years, and we need people who are willing to dedicate some time and effort to ensure that we continue upon that path.

2017 will see our show return to Las Vegas and our host hotel is the Linq Hotel and Casino resort right in the middle of the Strip! We promise to have a great trade show, informative education seminars, and the return of the Golf Tournament. The Women of CETA will have a fun afternoon planned, and of course our Opening Reception will take place in the shadows of the giant Ferris wheel at the Linq! Plan on attending September 12 – 14th.
