Banquet Committee Chair

The banquet committee chair leads the group of volunteers who organize the National Capital Area Awards Banquet.  Their work is condensed into the first third of the year and typically includes:

  • Choosing the date and venue from among multiple options
  • Booking a guest speaker and optional band or other entertainment
  • Setting ticket prices, soliciting sponsors, and managing the event budget using a dedicated spending account
  • Marketing the event
  • Working with an external event planner

The past Northern VA and Washington Section chairs traditionally alternate serving as banquet committee chair.
