11AM start to ??????

Room rate $89.00

Just a reminder that fall meeting starts at 11am on Saturday. Please eat breakfast.   This will not be a short meeting.     We will have food brought in later for a late lunch/early dinner. We have so much to discuss. This cannot be done in a 2 hour rushed meeting.   I know everyone is busy but we make commitments to the society and we should keep them.

 

Conference will be shared by all chapters next year and maybe all the conferences in the future. It is too hard for 1 person in the chapter to do all the work when chapter rosters have 100+ people.   We are all in the same boat except for Mississippi Valley, Illinois Valley, and Lincoln Land Chapters whose membership is less than 100.

 

It has been the understanding for as long as I've been in ISMA that each chapter supports the conference with an ad for the program, well-wishers, and a raffle gift.   This is not happening. We also need our members to attend this event.   ISMA members should also advertise this to coworkers

 

It was a shame for all the hard work Kelly did that we couldn't have a General Assembly. We did the best we could.   We need to think about the future.

 

Amber ( our VP) is looking for people to take office.   2020 is an election year. Consent to serve forms are on our website.   Check the policy manual and bylaws for the requirements of each position.

 

BECKY CRUSE IS OUR CONFERENCE CHAIR FOR 2020 CONFERENCE. EACH CHAPTER WILL TAKE A RESPONSIBILITY AND COMPLETE THE TASK.   CONTACT HER FOR YOUR OPTIONS. CELL 309-738-9871 , EMAIL   .

There may be committee meetings on Friday night. Committee chairs will inform you.

 

I will be arriving Saturday morning as I have a commitment on Friday night. I will be leaving Saturday night after the meeting. I am willing to stay as late as needed as I have an event to attend on Sunday.

 

Chapters please pay for the hotel room for your chapter rep/reps.   You get dues money to be used for chapter expenses.  

 

I know everyone has family, medical and personal issues going on in their lives, so do I, so won't you please help this organization keep going.   Our ISMA Angels have worked so hard to bring us this far. Let's not let them down.     I can't sleep at night with Jean, Ehlma, Marge and Char Rubley having very loud discussions!!!!!

 

Chapters please make sure your REPRESENTATIVE can make the decision for the task they choose. If you don't choose something you will be given a task. Please keep me and my family in your prayers.
