An update from your President

May 2019


Just a few things to share with everyone.


The year seems to be flying by. We are currently finishing up all the planning for the International Conference in New Orleans, August 18 – 22, 2019. We are assisting the International office anyway we can as we are the host section. Registration for the International Conference is open and the link is on our home page. Again, we will NOT be holding a June conference with the International being held in New Orleans. If you would like to volunteer at the International conference, please contact the Section office and they can point you in the right direction.

Our annual business meeting and elections will be held at the International conference on Tuesday August 20th, 2019, room TBA. Officer positions that will be up for election are; Alternate Delegate, Vendor Representative, Arkansas State Director, Louisiana State Director, Oklahoma State Director, and Texas State Director. More information will be posted towards the end of June on the procedure for being nominated for one of the above positions.

We are going to be at Great Wolf Lodge again in November 2019. We are also excited to be looking at Horseshoe casino in Bossier City for the June 2020 conference. We are also looking at going to a 5-day conference for the June 2020 conference, look for more info on this in the months to come. Preliminary planning has been started for both of these conferences. We look forward to continued Vendor support, as it is ALWAYS appreciated and welcome. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to email me. 

Thank you to all our members for supporting our section and I look forward to seeing everyone at the International Conference being held at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana.
