About ILEA Boston


Famous for its hospitality and friendly spirit, Boston is one of the top meeting destinations in the United States. The area has over 35 hospitals and more than 60 colleges and universities, which make it a fantastic base for some of the country's best guest speakers.

Founded in 1988, the ILEA Boston Chapter has supported its members and the industry at large, through cutting edge educational programs, dynamic networking events and a peer-to-peer support system that helps our members grow their businesses and their careers.  

ILEA Boston hosts both educational meetings, and social/networking meetings on a monthly basis. Our meetings showcase different venue locations and vendors throughout Greater Boston and the New England area.   In addition to monthly meetings, the chapter organizes philanthropic initiatives, scholarships and much, much more.  Our end of the year Heart and Soul Gala event in June recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the chapter.

The chapter is run entirely by volunteers and guided by a member-elected Board of Directors, which reports to ILEA International.
