Brian Griffith, SITE SoCal President 2019A new year brings fresh energy and change and SITE SoCal is excited for all the opportunities that are ahead. As President, my goal for the new year is simple: We want SITE SoCal to be your preferred professional association in the Incentive Travel Industry. We’re going to work hard all year to bring you the best in class networking and education as well as deliver the most impactful sponsorship opportunities. Most importantly, we’re going to continue to give back to the charities that serve the Southern California area.

Back to the Basics is the theme for 2019 and I’m excited to further explain exactly what I mean by this. In short, 2019 education is going to be focused on the basic functionality of our business and how we can all conduct business with each other more efficiently. There are also many changes happening in our industry with hotel management acquisitions, and Incentive Travel safety concerns as regulations are constantly changing between countries, just to name a few. It’s important to me that you look to SITE SoCal to provide you with updates and useful education as we change with the industry.

What you can expect at our Installation Dinner:

  • Networking Reception & Registration beginning at 6:30 PM
  • Dinner provided by Old Ranch Country Club
  • Installation of the 2019 SITE SoCal Board of Directors
  • Presentation of the 2018 Holiday Event Charity checks
  • A first look at SITE SoCal’s 2019 calendar

Qualified Planners, a Match Me List is provided and we encourage you to sign up to place your name on this list, which will notify suppliers that you would like to attend the event. Suppliers will then have the opportunity to host your registration, should they choose.

SITE member suppliers, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to host your own 8–top table for this event! We have a number of table host sponsorship packages that provide additional significant benefits. To take advantage of these opportunities please select the “Celebrate with a Table of Eight” option during the registration process. A member of our planning team will follow up with you for your logo and any other details we may need.

Creative sponsorship packages are available for this event, including a first time “collaborative” sponsorship program with significant benefits to those who are willing to give it a try at a low cost and want “in”. Be “in” the know on this and many sponsor opportunities for the year by contacting our VP of Sponsorships, Kathie Giles at for more information.

Giving back has always been at the core of who we are as a chapter and as a community, and we plan on continuing that throughout 2019. This annual event allows us a great opportunity to recognize our three special non-profit organizations who were selected to receive funds raised by YOU from our 2018 SITE SoCal Holiday Event & Charity Auction. At the Holiday Event, these organizations shared their inspirational stories with us. Please join us as the chapter distributes checks to representatives of Bracken’s Kitchen, Mitchell Thorp Foundation and CARMA.

Thank you, SITE SoCal. We appreciate you and your support in 2019. Now, it’s time that we get Back to the Basics!
