Having served on the committee several times, I know the impact this committee can have on the future of the association and the industry. Bringing special event rental companies together to discuss the issues facing our industry is invaluable to not only the companies involved, but the entire industry.” Dan Hooks, CERP
The Party and Events Shared Interest Group Committee recently met at the ARA headquarters in Moline, IL to discuss the overall vision and goals of the committee for the next three years under Dan’s leadership. Dan set the tone for his tenure by sharing his vision for the committee and his role as the Chairman in the following way.
“My role is to listen to the voices of the members and make sure the association is doing all it can to support its members. Our association has a broad range of companies in regards to size and scope, but I believe every member can benefit from the promotion of professional business principles and shared practices that membership can bring. One of my main goals is to promote and increase the professionalism of the special event rental industry, so that our members are viewed as the experts in the field and get the respect they deserve for the hard work they do each day.” Dan Hooks, CERP
The entire team here at Party Reflections is proud to support Dan in his new role as the ARA Chairman of the Party and Events Special Interest Group. #PRexperience
