06/02/2014 – President’s Column

Hello again!

I thought it was time I sent out an update on what your officers have been doing behind the scenes since my last correspondence. Our goal is to evaluate everything that we do, in order to provide value to our members of Mid-Atlantic. We are in the process of enhancing our website. Once completed, you will be able to post to the group: revenue generating ideas, industry related questions and best practices.

For our conference, we want to insure that our program lineup is beneficial and addresses the needs or challenges that we all face in our industry. Email me directly, and our program chair will look at building sessions on the most frequently submitted ideas.

As you can see, we are very serious about the sustainability of Mid-Atlantic. We have morphed into an organization of peers who work tirelessly throughout the year to problem solve, share ideas and from time to time commiserate.

Currently your officers are reaching out to non-members in the southeast encouraging them to consider joining Mid-Atlantic. As you can imagine, an organization such as ours cannot thrive without growth. We welcome any assistance that you can provide. Look deep into your contacts and reach out to your peers to share the value of Mid-Atlantic. Membership rates and information are located on the website.

I want to personally invite you to attend the 2015 conference, March 5-7 in Savannah, Georgia. Bring your spouse or significant other to one of the greatest, among southern cities. We have arranged a Historic Savannah Walking Tour with a fantastic guide for spouses on Friday morning, March 6.

Thank you in advance for your support and commitment to Mid-Atlantic.

I look forward to seeing you in Savannah!
