This Since 1916, Executives Associations have spread from city to city, started by successful business men and women sharing industry news with others and seeking new ways to gain an edge on their competition. Executive Associations now operate in major cities through the U.S. and Canada, as well as in England, Switzerland, South Africa and beyond. Today, there are over 110 official Executive Associations across the globe, establishing the prestigious Executive Association web which represents over 5,000 member firms.
Lisa became Managing Director of the IEA in January after serving on the IEA Board of Directors. She is also the Executive Director of the Charlotte chapter for almost 10 years. Recently, Lisa organized the IEA conference in Charlotte in 2018. This week Lisa spoke to our members about their IEA benefits.

We are excited to announce that starting October 5th we will begin hybrid meetings. We will continue Zoom and go back to The Grand at limited capacity. We are reserving 25 spaces for members and potential members. If you would like to reserve a spot to meet please let me know by the Friday before the meeting. Since we are limited; if you reserve a spot and call in on Monday instead you will be charged $20 for not attending the meeting in person. The association has also put protocols into place to keep you, other members and guest safe. We will ask you to sign a waiver every meeting you attend and you will be required to have you temperature taken and mask on (except for sitting and eating lunch). Please adhere to our protocols or you will be asked to leave the meeting. We are looking forward to being able to present these options to you so we can be together in person and through Zoom.
We are going to Meetings will now begin at 12pm. I will open the meeting at 11:30am They will end at 1pm.
Remember to invite guests to keep our membership continually growing!
Please stay safe and follow sanitary protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will continue to use Zoom for your weekly meetings going forward.
