The Promise of Every New Year

Photo credit: Aaron Webb

As most of us do to some degree, I’ve reflected on the past year and contemplated the next. Looking back, I’m extraordinarily proud of the work our Webster Group has done to support our very diverse clients, each of which does extraordinary work. We are proud to play a role in their many successes.

I share this exciting summary of the work we have done in conjunction with our corporate, government, association and nonprofit clients alike; together we have planned and produced galas, conferences, workshops, and trade missions, and had the opportunity to work in Canada, India, South Africa, and Senegal!   

We now look ahead to another year, our 24th, in which we will proudly support the work of a wide range clients. We truly appreciate each of our clients for all they do daily--changing lives for the better, and we are immensely grateful to be included in such work.

 

2018 Highlights

Last year we again were privileged to produce the Opening Ceremony for Washington, DC’s iconic National Cherry Blossom Festival. The event kicks off an entire year of exciting events that bring millions of tourists (and their dollars!) to the area annually.

Another 2018 highlight was the Congressional Medal of Honor Society convention, the nearly week-long annual gathering of recipients who, for their bravery on the battlefield, have received our country’s highest military honor.

For two plus years we worked with the convention CEO, Robert Monahan, to design and later produce a week of very special events-which included a private reception hosted by President Trump at the White House, a formal gala for 700 at the US Naval Academy and a Town Hall Forum, moderated by Chris Wallace with 4,000 midshipmen in attendance.

“The ISF has enjoyed a successful partnership with The Webster Group since 2015.  Their guidance and expertise has helped our annual fundraising dinner grow beyond any of our wildest dreams.  This past year, when everything changed because of COVID-19, The Webster Group helped us quickly pivot to planning and executing a successful virtual fundraising event. We are still getting wonderful feedback on our program and know that a large part of its success was because of The Webster Group’s guidance and creativity. We look forward to many years of working with The Webster Group.”
