The National Association of Balloon Artists is continuing to develop and grow and is delighted to announce the appointment of Cristina Jesus-Carter to the committee.
Cristina has joined the committee to help further develop their membership offering after enjoying several years of unrivalled support as a member. Cristina stated “NABAS is unrivalled in its approach to education, training and member support and has always provided a great deal of encouragement and support to me and my small business. I would like to give back by supporting the committee and its members to promote and grow the association further.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Cristina extended her expertise to NABAS members by hosting a series of webinars to help them develop and improve their Instagram accounts, a crucial marketing channel in the balloon and party industry.
Her skillset will further enrich the NABAS committee, with ten years’ experience in sales and marketing, extensive industry experience in digital content creation and promotion and events coordination and management. She is also keen to assist with blog and magazine content creation.
Joining the NABAS committee will, by her own admission, present new challenges and opportunities but she pledges to be “fully committed to the role and do everything (she) can to support the Chair, other committee members and the association as a whole, along with its much valued members.”
George Oustayiannis, NABAS Chair, commented “I’m delighted to welcome Cristina to the NABAS committee. I am confident she will bring much-valued opinions, ideas and skills, which will be a tremendous benefit to NABAS both now and in the future. I also thank and congratulate her for stepping up and taking action and responsibility for the future of our association. This is a tremendously challenging role that requires focus, heart, passion, gratitude, drive and dependability. Working hard for something we don’t care about is called ‘stress’. Working hard for something we believe in and love is called ‘passion’. Get ready to laugh, get ready to cry, get ready for highs, get ready for lows, but throughout all this, now you will never be alone, and the support of those around you will never be in question. Welcome Cristina Jesus-Carter.”
