Newsletter From the Director

Mon, 31 July 2017 / Published in District IV News

Good morning everyone, with the start of fall camp here, I wanted to inform everyone the status of next year’s District Meeting. The Crown Plaza East in Memphis is officially booked. I will work on sending a link to everyone, so you can start reserving your rooms soon. Marc Hohorst has been working on obtaining party buses for transportation, setting up tours with Fed Ex, and possibly Nike. We are starting to get some traction on getting the District Meeting up and running, but there’s one main concern. We can’t do all this planning if there’s no participation / attendance. What I need to know, “Is this worth the time of work and money being put in for members and vendors?” We will  reach out to vendors for participation and some financial assistance if possible. Also, I will reach out to some of our members to head up committees. I know it’s going to be difficult to multi-task trying to get a District 4 meeting off the ground along with doing our jobs, but this can be a huge step to something beneficial to everyone for years to come. Our district has had a long history of low participation on conventions. Let’s get rid of that reputation, and do something magnificent for District 4. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to contact me. Good luck this season and God bless.
