Awards and Good Cheer At IEC’S 2020 Christmas Party and Awards Celebration
IEC Atlanta /Georgia Chapters celebrated and awarded members and guests with accolades and prizes while bringing the 2020 year to a close. It was hosted at Maggiano’s Little Italy at Cumberland on December 4th. This event normally caters to around 200 guests but was whittled to a ballroom of around 90 attendees due to COVID guidelines. The smaller group did not damper the fun and festivities IEC’s annual Christmas Party always offers.
A delicious lunch was served while guests enjoyed an open bar, entertainment from comedian Sean Reynolds and raffle prizes delivered to some lucky attendees, throughout the afternoon! IEC Atlanta’s Chapter Board President, Bob Harmon gave a welcome and jumped right to the acknowledgement of the contractors receiving membership awards.
