Spring Conference May 3- May 5, 2019

Governor’s Message

Greetings!

It may not “feel” like Spring at this moment, but before we know it, the days will be lighter longer, flowers will be popping up, the smell of cut grass will be in the air, and warmer weather will be surrounding us!

With Spring approaching we will be ‘cruisin’ into Mars, Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania on May 3 for our annual Spring Conference! The Board has been working since last spring to develop a conference that will be uplifting, informative and fun.

We are so happy that SI Butler is our host for this year. They too have been working diligently to ensure that your visit to Cranberry will be perfect in every way. They have compiled a list of “things to do” during your visit.

Many items will be sent to each club president so that they can share with each member. Presidents I encourage you to forward and discuss all items that you are sent.

Some highlights for Spring Conference:

  •  We will welcome our Federation visitor, Bonnie Domonchuk from SI Cambridge.
  • And of course there is a Friday Evening Party with a 50’s Theme, so get those Poodle Skirts ready!
  • Our Region project this year is the Victim Outreach Intervention Center (VOICe).
  • Your continued support for Laurel Society will be recognized at our opening social Friday evening.
  • Our Live Your Dream Awards and Ethel F. Lord recipient will once again highlight our Saturday luncheon.
  • We are having a special film viewing of “In Plain Sight: Stories of Hope and Freedom” which focuses on six modern-day abolitionists as they fight sex trafficking across America.
  • As with each new biennium, the Board has reviewed and revised our bylaws and we will need a vote to approve.
  • This year we have added two additional recognition awards, Newsletter development and Social Media for public awareness.
  • We think you will love the new NAR merchandise that has been designed for this biennium.
  • Raffle tickets for the “Beach House” will be sent to Presidents for pre-sales.

**And yes the coveted Governor’s Cup Award! This year we will recognize each club that sends the application.

I hope we can set record numbers for attendance this year. I encourage all members to attend and I hope each club will be represented. I look forward to welcoming our First Time Attendees too.

It is great seeing many familiar members who attend and meeting new attendees is fun for everyone involved! Please make every effort to attend YOUR Spring Conference this year.

Fondly,

Governor Peggy
