Star Productions’ president Alan Smithson has been appointed president-elect for the Toronto chapter of the International Special Events Society (ISES).
“My vision for ISES Toronto is to grow the membership by more than 50 per cent,” says Smithson in a release. “I would also like to boost the visibility of the organization, build cooperation with organizations such as Meeting Planners International (MPI) and Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), and strengthen the position of the meetings industry in Canada. That’s an aggressive goal, but if I can get the team of 13 board members working together, it is totally achievable.”
For more than two years, Smithson has been a member of ISES Toronto’s board of directors, serving as vice-president, membership.
As president-elect from June, 2010, Smithson will be groomed for the role of president, beginning June 2011.
