The International Special Events Society announced a strategic partnership with the Event Leadership Institute (ELI) to collaborate in the development of educational content. The announcement was made at the ISES Annual Meeting.

ELI’s online educational classes will be the first to receive the new “ISES Approved” designation, a review process ISES will be using to determine which educational offerings meet with the organization’s new professional development standards. Additional details on the partnership will be announced shortly.

The “ISES Approved” designation is being rolled out in conjunction with Education Content Outlines that ISES will be distributing to its 54 chapters worldwide.ELI will collaborate with the ISES Education Council on the development of ongoing content, to ensure that classes it develops are in synch with ISES’ Education Content Outlines.
