More than 60 people gathered at the Emerging Leaders Network's "Meet at the Suite" evening event which took place in NAMA Chair Pete Tullio’s suite on Nov. 13, 2013 at the 2013 CoffeeTea&Water show.
Led by Paul Tullio, the group's discussion focused on the next phase of the ELN, including idea-sharing regarding professional development.
"It's an exciting time for our organization and we have an amazing opportunity to learn and network. As emerging leaders, we all have a commitment to this industry and want to foster its success - and our own," said Paul Tullio, in a prepared statement.
In addition to emerging leaders, NAMA's Carla Balakgie was joined by Chair Pete Tullio and his wife, Carol, Howard Chapman, Craig Hesch and Steve Hyde, all of whom shared their views on the future of ELN, as well as their vision for the group that they played a role in developing.
Sponsors of the event were Gourmet Coffee Service, Royal Cup and Aramark.
