    President's Report

    Hello Charlotte NACE!

     We are finally in the ending stretch of summer and fall is approaching soon!  I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to leaves turning colors, sweaters, and cooler weather!  Fall in Charlotte is a busy season, so hopefully you are well rested from summer and ready to rock and roll!

     August’s annual Experience! Conference recap was a big success!  The team at Queen City Catering produced a wonderful program complete with cocktail reception, breakout sessions and live cooking demos that entertained and wowed the crowd.   We learned about everything from small business employment contracts, décor/lighting trends, the latest culinary innovations, and Tito’s Vodka’s success story.  A big thank you to our presenters Matt Vilmer, Cristin Lee, and Courtney Squeglia who recreated their sessions from the Experience! Conference. 

    Thank you Vendors:

     I’m so excited about September’s upcoming program, “Mysterious Dining in the Dark” hosted at the Marriott Center City.  Expect to be wowed by the food, décor, and evening program that is sure to thrill and surprise you.  Our Programs Committee is designing an evening to remember!  For more information and to register, go to
