A big thanks to Georgia for a great meeting in Savannah and
an unforgettable banquet. If you weren’t
there, you really missed out!
While that will certainly be a hard act to follow, we are
already working hard to make the 2015 meeting great. This is not one you’ll want to miss. We’ll meet the last week of October at the
Landmark Resort in Myrtle Beach, right in the middle of 60 continuous miles of
beautiful Grand Strand beach. You’ll be
near more great restaurants, shopping, golf, fishing, and entertainment than
you can imagine. If you have time after
all that, I hope you might stop in for some of the talks. Among other things, Dr. Morse and Dr. Jacobus
have graciously agreed to walk us all through the brand new eastern EPT book
we’ve been anxiously awaiting. That’s
reason enough to come right there! We’re
also putting together some cool field trips to let you see some of our more
natural areas. More on that later.
The Landmark is really bending over backwards to make our
stay as pleasant and convenient (not to mention cheap!) as possible. They are
providing us 2 side-by-side hospitality suites. They have lots of pools, lazy
rivers, a putt putt golf course, abundant free parking and of course they sit
right on the beach. They have even
agreed to throw in a nice, hot breakfast for us each day. Check out these rates. These inclusive rates are just for us.Rates
I know you see those rates and you want to grab the phone
and make your reservation now. Be
patient, it’s still early. I’ll give you
some specific instructions for making your reservations a little later. For now concentrate on begging your
supervisor for permission to go. It may
help your case if you can start thinking up something you can present. If it doesn’t help you, it will at least help
me to fill out the agenda. Go ahead and
let me know if you already know of a topic you could present (or talk someone
else into presenting) or if you have some ideas for session topics. I would like to start to get a feel for where
the most interest lies so that we can spend more time in those areas.
Registration will remain $100 as it was last year and will
include a shirt and the banquet. The
shirts will be blue on white ringers with blue ink and hopefully will look
something like this picture. Not sure
yet about long sleeve - probably.
We’ll be in touch. In
the meantime, keep your feet wet!
