August 2017
Well the dog days of summer are certainly upon us. I hope everyone is having a great summer and perhaps have had the chance to take a little vacation to refresh and prepare for the busy fall season ahead.

We had a great time at our July luncheon! As promised, Judi Holler was incredibly informative (and entertaining) and we were proud to once again present Wounded Warrior Project with school supplies for the upcoming school year. Many thanks to our Community Outreach Committee and everyone who contributed – we had more than 4 tables overflowing with a variety of items, ensuring a great start to the school year for these wonderful families.

As I’m sure you’ve all heard, the Southeast Education Conference (SES) has been postponed. While we are disappointed along with you, we are very excited that the program will be coming right back to North Florida (Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa, August 22-24, 2018) and are looking forward to a bigger and better conference than ever. Keep your eye out for conference communications starting up again soon!

Your new Board of Directors has kicked off the year with a bang and we have lots of great education and networking events right around the corner. Be sure to mark your calendar for September 12 (Jacksonville) and September 13 (Tallahassee) for our next great luncheons, with speaker Lynn Wellish who will help us work on defining clear goals and objectives. Check out the events page on our website to read more about Lynn’s session along with our other upcoming events.

In the interim, the Board will be holding our next meeting on Thursday, August 10 at Season’s 52. We would love to have you join us at 5:30pm for happy hour (dutch treat).

Enjoy these last few weeks of the Summer and we look forward to seeing you soon!
