An update from your President

March 2019

Greetings


As we move into March, I hope everyone is drying out and warming up.  Just a few things to share with everyone.


The updated by-laws were put on-line from March 1, 2019 (0700) to March 14, 2019 (1600) for all ACTIVE and PUBLIC AGENCY members to vote to approve the revised by-laws. The revised Section by-laws were posted on the home page of the Section’s website (http://imsaswsection.org/) for everyone to review. I am pleased to announce that the revised by-laws were APPROVED by the ACTIVE and PUBLIC AGENCY members of the Southwestern section. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. 


Registration is now closed for the March 2019 conference in Tulsa, OK. The Vendor Registration has also closed. We are looking at a pretty good turn-out. I want to thank the following vendors for signing up for the Tulsa, OK. Conference. K&K Systems, Dialight, Mobotrex, Consolidated Traffic Control, Sky Bracket, Centerline, Pelco, Trafficware, Zinc Five, Inc, and Citel.


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. 


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.


Again, we will not be holding a June conference in 2019 due to the International Conference being held in New Orleans in August. 


Thank you to all our members for supporting our section and I look forward to seeing everyone at the March Conference being held at the Crowne Plaza in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  


Sincerely,     


Randy Wellhausen, President  

Southwestern Section IMSA
