SFA Chapter Presidents,
I wanted to provide a quick update:
There are only 58 days until Registration Fees increase to $150.00. Please encourage your members to register early. This will save them some money and, more importantly, allow Chapter 68 to plan more effectively. We have to approximate numbers early so that we can order coins, glassware, bottles of wine and other items given away during the convention. Many of these items must be ordered 60 days out to ensure there arrival.
Rooms in the Marriott and Embassy Suites are filling up. If you still need to make reservations, do so in the next 60 days. If you are coming with a larger group, consider staying as a group in the Holiday Inn Express were there is the largest block of rooms remaining. It is a nice hotel right across from the Convention Center (Banquet), will have its own Hospitality Suite and there will be shuttle vans available to take you to the other hotels, if needed. It is about a block from the Marriott and two blocks from the Embassy Suites.
Look for updates on what restaurants that are participating in ‘The Taste of Charleston’ and the menus for each.
If you have any questions, please call (304) 962-8017. Thanks.
