Why SITE Texas?

Our rallying cry for 2021 is INSPIRE, ENGAGE, IGNITE. This passionate theme was born from our December 2020 retreat when our Board of Directors and key Committee Chairs spent almost 3 days together in beautiful Fredericksburg, Texas breaking down our organization, evaluating our strengths and opportunities, and putting it all back together into a thoughtful, yet ambitiously designed plan for action.

We have a lot in store for you in 2021. Plans include embracing our gloried past by creating a Past Presidents Council that will honor and leverage the incredible experience we are privileged to have with our Past Presidents within our membership. We will also be focusing on our future, with a robust campaign for Young Leaders as the future of our organization. Then launching the next step of pulling both sides together with a Mentor program to create new connections and invaluable professional relationships

As a SITE Texas member, you already know that Education and Networking are cornerstones of our organization, but this year’s programming promises to take both to the next level. We’ve re-evaluated our sponsorship opportunities. We’ve created unique and creative options for brand collaboration with concrete return on investment for sponsors and flexible options for those that need to engage with the SITE Texas marketplace on a budget.

Our future is bright, and I know I speak on behalf of our entire Board of Directors when I say it is a privilege and an honor to serve the SITE Texas community. Join us! Share your ideas, your talents, and your passion for our industry, as we continue to raise the bar. Together we can unite to INSPIRE, ENGAGE, and IGNITE each other, the incentive travel industry, and our global community in 2021!
