It is with great sadness that we share the passing of ILEA Past President Patti Coons, CSEP, the longtime events industry icon. Patti was a tireless advocate for the association from its very inception. For over thirty years, Patti brought enthusiasm and tenacity to the live events industry.
In 1990 she founded our Orlando chapter and served as Chapter President for three years. “Patti was also a huge proponent of continuing education and was one of 23 people to earn the inaugural CSEP designation in 1993. If you were lucky enough to be standing next to her, there was something to learn”, said Connie Riley, CMP, CSEP, and Paul Creighton, CSEP. Patti led as our International President in 2005 and her passion for the association never waned.
May we remember her enduring love for the association, dedication to this industry, and her infectious laugh. Thank you, Patti, for everything you did for ILEA and our industry. You will never be forgotten.
