As we navigate these new times, in 2023 our chapter will continue to offer events and projects that will:
- Provide education on the latest industry trends;
- Connect us with the renewed marketplace and new members;
- Provide community support via CSR activities;

Presidents SITE Northeast 2023
December 3, 2019
We are extremely saddened to announce the passing of our dearly loved 2019 SITE Northeast USA Chapter President, Jeannette Lupachino, CMM, CIS, HMCC, on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
Jeannette's contributions to our Chapter started the moment she joined our board. In particular her tireless efforts in the creation of our keystone event, our annual Silent Auction, truly drove our chapter to the next level of success. Due of Jeannette’s hard work and initiative, we have been able to offer scholarships to our members to attend valuable and educational industry events for the past 3 years, and allowed us to grow our footprint of SITE Northeast leaders on a global scale. In addition the moment Jeannette walked into a room everyone felt welcomed, valued and part of our greater family. I know I am echoing everyone’s feelings of appreciation for Jeannette’s unrelenting dedication, support, leadership and friendship. To say she will be deeply missed by us all by us all is an understatement.
In recognition of Jeannette's invaluable contributions to the incentive travel community, we are honored and humbled to dedicate an annual $1,000 Chapter Scholarship in her name - "The Jeannette Lupachino SHINE Scholarship", to be used for one SITE Northeast Member to attend a SITE Global event or Educational Program hosted by our Chapter, decided on an annual basis by the SITE Northeast USA Board of Directors.
We have named it the Jeannette Lupachino SHINE scholarship based on key qualities Jeannette demonstrated both personally and professionally:
"When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure."
Incentive Travel. Business Results.
