After a decade, the Student Event Planners Association (SEPA) will be closing effective May 31, 2019.
SEPA is based on university campuses nationwide and develops students into event professionals.
SEPA will remain open through the Spring semester and honor membership benefits through May 31, 2019. Memberships that extend beyond this date will receive a partial refund.
Chapters may continue to use the SEPA name and branding indefinitely, however they will operate independently as of June 1, 2019.
Aubri Nowowiejski, SEPA Founder & Board Director, stated, “I’m extremely proud of what SEPA has accomplished in the last decade. I know that our legacy will live on through the testaments of our past members and leaders as they excel in their careers.”
Associations across all industries are seeing a decline in membership participation and retention. With most university students graduating within four years, this short time span has made sustainability impossible.
Existing members are encouraged to take advantage of their national membership benefits while they can.
