IAEE Announces New Student Chapter at University of Houston
The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) has added its newest student chapter at the University of Houston, making it the third, IAEE student chapter established within the last year.
"With the addition of the University of Houston to our growing list of student chapters," says IAEE President and CEO David DuBois, CAE, CMP, FASAE, CTA. "IAEE expands its goals toward building awareness and participation to engage the young professionals entering the workforce as established in our strategic plan."
Founded in 1927, the University of Houston (UH) is the leading public research university in Houston, Texas. Each year, UH educates more than 40,750 students in more than 300 undergraduate and graduate academic programs, on campus and online. UH awards more than 8,000 degrees annually, with more than 224,000 alumni. Exhibition and event management is taught through the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management.
"There is a strong presence of exhibition and event facilities in Houston so it seemed only natural to form a chapter in the area," says Anthony Caterina, lecturer at UH and faculty advisor for the new student chapter. "Our mission includes introducing IAEE to our international students, as IAEE is active in many home countries of those students. It also includes helping establish networking opportunities for our students to gain hands-on experience. We highly encourage local IAEE members to reach out to us and welcome them to speak at our meetings. UH is excited to be part of such an international and established organization."
Other IAEE student chapters are located at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Georgia State University; Johnson and Wales University; and DePaul University.
