AANR-Florida wants to visit you!!
Believe it or not, time is fast approaching for AANR-Florida to make our 2014 meeting and convention schedule. We are looking for places to meet for our 2014 Mid-Winter Meeting (in either January or February 2014) and for our Annual Convention in June 2014. These meetings and their announcements provide a great opportunity for your club!
Hosting the Mid-Winter meeting (landed or non-landed clubs) or the Convention (landed clubs only) provides several benefits for your club – AANR-Florida will reimburse the host club for expenses incurred that are related to hosting the meeting or convention. In addition to reimbursement of expenses, AANR-Florida provides a "Thank You" check to clubs that host the meetings and conventions. It also provides revenue for landed clubs from the attendees' reservations/spending. Finally, and maybe most importantly for you, this is a great opportunity to let AANR members know more about your club/facilities through our announcements and publicity regarding the meeting/convention.
Attendance at the mid-winter meeting includes approximately 8-10 board members and their guests; attendance at the Summer Convention includes not only the board members/guests, but also delegates from all other clubs in Florida who are encouraged to attend – your club will need to have sufficient accommodations available for these attendees.
We ask that you consider hosting an event and submit your bid as soon as possible so that we may consider and vote on our meeting locations at our 2013 Convention to be held this summer at Suwannee Valley Resort near White Springs, FL on June 21-23. If interested, contact AANR-Florida’s Convention Chair, Jim Wulchak, at email@example.com to obtain the bid form to fill out and return or download the .Landed Club Application or Non Landed Application, fill out and send to Jim.
We look for diversity of locations for these meetings, so every club that has the ability should seriously consider hosting one of these events for 2014 – you won’t regret it!! We look forward to working with your club!
