May 21st marked the kickoff of the first Young Leaders event for the Florida and Caribbean Society for Incentive Travel Excellence Chapter!
Young Leaders Chairwoman Kelsey Gernert took the lead in organizing the event with the assistance of her Co-chair Maoreen Every and the support of Immediate Past President and Young Leader‚Äôs Mentor Wichita Villacres as well as Young Leaders Global Committee Member Darysse Croes.
The event was hosted with the sponsorship of ECO Destination Management Services and Texas De Brazil. The socializer was hosted in Aruba at Texas de Brazil of Aruba. We had over 30 attendees and were able to raffle off one SITE membership due to the great sponsorship of our chapter. The lucky winner was Nayibe Herrera of KiniKini Tours and we are excited to welcome her as one of our newest members! It was a great success as we have received numerous follow up emails from interested Young Leaders who are inquiring about joining Young Leaders and becoming members of SITE.
A two hours scheduled event was extended another hour and a half with the support of our sponsors Texas De Brazil and ECO Destination Management Services as people anted to continue the networking and discussions. While this kickoff was a great success it only sets the groundwork for more Young Leaders events within our chapter. The Young Leader‚Äôs Facebook Group SITE Florida and Caribbean Young Leaders‚Äù was created and serves as the primary hub for information sharing.
