Hey, Hey, Local NACE-ers, it's Time to Get your Mingle on! So Awesome!!


The Tacoma/South Puget Sound Chapter doubled in size in the last year-and-a-half, and we want to grow in other ways, too --


Like exploding our event-professional networks; strengthening our mutual understanding; growing in trust, and also in friendship.

If you learned the old song, "Make new friends, but keep the old -- one is silver and the other is gold," there's a silver-lining and golden-rule in the lyrics. Friends are treasures. We need to keep good-old friends, and make awesome-new friends! And as we invest some time getting to know, like, and trust each other, the business will eventually follow, for:

“All things being equal, people will do business with and
refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”

- Bob Burg, Author of The Go-Giver


Mixing and Mingling, fun and laughter, making new acquaintances, freshening up friendships, and simply having a low-stress good time, is what this evening is all about. And The Armory in Downtown T-Town is the place. The Vault Catering is excited to host us in their recently updated venue, with a delightful menu designed to help us maximize our mingle. No stuck-in-one-chair-all-night syndrome!


DJ Leanna Mason of Entertainment Masters, is ready to roll-out the good-times with an awesome assortment of fun stuff in the works.


Timed just before the full outbreak of wedding season, this meeting is all for you. You'll de-stress, smile, laugh, eat, drink, be surprised, and go home well-fed in every respect. Isn't that AWESOME??!!

Venue: The Armory

Caterer: The Vault

Entertainment: Entertainment Masters - DJ Leanna Mason - providing us with fun, games, dancing and PartyTouch Karaoke!
