Board of Directors

As events have moved toward creating a valuable experience for the attendee, we have also seen a trend in the live events industry to ensure that the event itself has a deeper meaning than just a “party”. It’s not uncommon for an event to now have an  altruistic purpose – filling the need to give back.

In 2015, when the Allies, the “event” – became Allie Awards, Inc. certified 501 (c)(3) public charity, it was imperative to lay the foundation for success with an all-volunteer Board of Directors. Members of the board include past Allie Awards Event Chairs along with representatives from our five Strategic Partner associations: ACVB, ILEA, MPI, NACE, WIPA.

Together, these eleven individuals attend regular meetings, have a fiduciary responsibility to properly manage the funds and oversee the strategic mission of the organization to support continued growth which allows us collectively to give back to our community and to the industry we all know and love.
