Members – this was communicated via an 8/23/2022 email from Bob Bowers to our chapter membership.
The Fall Leadership Conference/Trustees Meeting will be held at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky on Thursday September 29 thru Sunday AM October 1, 2022. Registration is now open
Who should plan on attending?
If you are on the National or State SAR Leadership, this may be for you.
Leadership is primarily a Trustees meeting, and most committees meet as well. The overall goal is for the Trustees to deal with any Society business they need to address and for committees, particularly those with subcommittees, to be briefed on the progress their committees/subcommittees have made since the last Leadership and for their chairmen to present their report to the Trustees. The Ladies Auxiliary also meets. All members are welcome to the event and may sit in on any meetings, but only Trustees (or Alternate Trustees) may vote. There is a donors recognition breakfast on Saturday morning, a luncheon for the ladies, and two evening banquets where the goal is socializing. There is typically a speaker at each banquet.
National committees will meet on Thursday and Friday. It is the responsibility of each chairman to notify committee members of the time and place of their meeting.
The schedule of meeting times and places is linked below and is posted on the web site. The Trustees meet on Saturday morning where reports will be presented by national officers and committee chairmen.
Reports Due – please note that Kelly Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org) must have your written report no later than September 2, 2022. The report form can be found on the SAR website. Dinner banquets are scheduled for Friday and Saturday evenings for your social pleasure.
Accommodations – for those interested in accommodations at the Brown Hotel, I recommend that reservations (Reservation Desk or 1-502-583-1234) be scheduled immediately as the space there is limited. Other hotels, inns, and motels are available but if you plan to stay in the Brown Hotel, you should identify yourself as an SAR member for a special room rate.
We have two pre-meeting forms for you to review and sign (they can be completed electronically). They will need to be turned in to Kelly Moore on the 2nd floor of the Brown Hotel (Registration Table) upon arrival or the earliest convenience.
SAR Point of Contact – for additional information, the office point of contact is Kelly Moore (1-502-589-1776 or 502-588- 6123 or email@example.com).
The meeting schedule is available though it is still subject to changes.
