Heidi Dillon, a 9-year member of the Events Industry, has been named to the SITE Board of Directors for 2021. Heidi’s involvement in SITE has been extensive as she was a Global Young Leaders Co-Chair in 2019. For SITE Global, she helped orchestrate the 3-day Young Leaders conference – a great undertaking. Heidi worked closely with the larger committee to fundraise, involve SITE IBOD & IBOT mentors, incorporate CSR opportunities, and bring together speakers and attendees from all facets of the travel industry. While serving as co-chair, she learned how to be a stronger mentor for attendees by reaching out to other Young Leaders and sharing her experiences with them – and listening to their brilliant ideas. She was also a member of the pilot SITE Mentorship program and Leaders in Action.
Joining the SITE International Board is something Heidi is not only excited about but well positioned for given her experience working on some of the most exclusive incentive programs in the industry along with her passion and knowledge for the industry. Heidi’s role on the SITE International Board of Directors will be the as the inaugural Young Leaders Chair. She believes in the importance of making sure young leaders and those new to the industry are represented and have a line of communication to industry leaders.
“As the Young Leaders Board member, I commit to continuing outreach to our Young Leaders, especially those who have remained in the industry while not forgetting those who have been forced to leave the industry to pursue a job elsewhere during the pandemic. As we work to rebuild and restore a booming incentive travel market, we will need these leaders back among our companies more than ever. I hope to serve as both a mentor and communicant to my generation of leaders.” – Heidi Dillon, CITP, Manager, Event Operations at One10
