A message from our President:

Annual Meeting Tidbits

Paul Schlatter, 2019 NWA President

It is now just weeks away! I can’t tell you how excited I am to see you in Huntsville September 8-12 for the Annual Meeting. This month’s newsletter is devoted to all the great events and opportunities associated with the Annual Meeting. In my President’s message, I want to highlight a key event I am looking forward to. But first, I hope you saw the email (or the website) for next year’s Annual Meeting. We were excited to announce that the Annual Meeting is the week of September 12-17, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was fortunate enough to join NWA CEO Janice Bunting on a tour of Tulsa leading up to the selection and toured a good number of potential facilities. The venue will be the Hyatt Regency, and the area surrounding the hotel and conference center is fantastic. Within a few blocks radius, there are numerous local eateries, bars with live music, and of course potential karaoke spots. The airport is extremely convenient and getting around Tulsa is a snap.  

You might be wondering, “How are locations selected for the Annual Meeting?” Nothing about the process is random, and it takes months to work through the process from end to end. The first step in the process is to identify a region where the annual meeting will take place. The region to host the meeting is approved by the NWA Board of Directors. We begin by analyzing past meeting attendance numbers and compare that to the location of our active members, with the end goal of selecting a region to hold the Annual Meeting each year. The Membership and Marketing Committee continues to do a fantastic job providing this analysis. Suffice it to say much thought is given to just picking the region each year.
