South Atlantic Region Meeting - March 20th (Zoom)

 Dear members, 

The 2021 SAR Annual Convention, via ZOOM,  is planned for Saturday, March 20, 2021. There are two meetings scheduled:
  • SAR Board of Directors will meet from 9 am to 10 am
  • The Full Business Meeting will convene at 10:30 am and will go until 1 pm.
The Full Business Meeting will consist of the following:
  1. General Membership Business Meeting
  2. SAR Director's report
  3. State President Reports - these should be under five minutes each and should cover the 2019-2021 term, as we didn't the convention last year.  Presidents should email a copy of the report to me, as well as a copy (in Word format) to Mary Sue Floyd for the next Keynotes publication.
  4. Treasurer's report and presentation of 2021-2022 budget.
  5. A presentation program of 2021 SAR Award winners
  6. Installation of our new SAR Director, Marty Bowers, by our NGC President, Gay Austin
Attached is a flyer for you to share with your state club presidents and members.  Please post on your website, if possible, and get the word out on this convention.  Our Zoom platform will support up to 500 participants (not that I expect that many!).  It would be wonderful to have a really good turnout for this event.  This will be an opportunity for anyone who has not been able to travel for an in-person convention to share in this one and meet a lot of really, really great members!
This event will have no cost involved; however, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED
Attached the Registration Form to be shared.  Once completed and returned to me via email, Zoom invitation links and confirmation will be emailed to the attendee.  This is necessary for credentials and voting strength data.
This "virtual" convention is a learning experience and something very new to a lot of us!  Trish Bender has been an invaluable help in getting this meeting set up for me.  I can't thank her enough!  I'm sure there will be a few boo-boos in getting through this new format, but we will "get her done!"
Please feel free to contact me with any questions via my email or on my cellphone at 304-616-2939.
Together, we can conquer anything!
Patty Arndt
SAR Director, 2020-2021
