2017 Chapter Reception

During Expo! Expo! the IAEE Central Texas Chapter and the DFW Chapter are again planning to host a Chapter Reception on Tuesday evening. This event brings together all Texas and Louisiana IAEE members attending Expo! Expo!  It provides the members an opportunity to touch base and connect with colleagues at the beginning of Expo! Expo! so our members can have a unified presence at the Opening Reception and subsequent events. The Chapter Reception at Expo! Expo! 2016 was a huge hit last year in Anaheim with attendance from Texas and all over the country. Of course there is no fee for this registration but we would like to know we can expect to see you.  Register Now!
