 2016 Convention Call




From the Alabama Division President, Linda Edwards

   September 2016

Tomorrow, September 2nd, is the final day to get your Pre Registration and Delegate Forms postmarked, if you haven't already sent them in, please mail them today or tomorrow. Remember, this is an election year, we are also voting on two Honorary Life Presidents and voting on our Division Pin.

Our UDC fiscal year ended on August 31st, any reports that Committee Chairs have, need to be sent to Pat Richter as soon as possible. Also, please make sure your Chapter President reports have been sent in.

All the planning for the convention is wrapping up. I believe this is the first year we have had the Memorial Service outside, the historical garden at the Old State Bank is absolutely beautiful, and very shaded. I hope you all enjoy the setting! Pamela Wright has once again donated many nice items for our Silent Auction, I have several items that have been dropped off at my house that I am sure will bring high bids! President General Pam Trammell will be with us, please remember to stand when she is introduced. 

This is my last message to the Alabama Division as your Division President. I have truly enjoyed being your President. I have enjoyed visiting the Chapters, Districts and events. At both of the Winter Boards, and our Division Convention last year, the feeling in the air was joy and happiness, I know our upcoming convention will have the same feeling. I want to thank the Division Officers for all doing such a great job, they made my job so easy, I could not have asked for a better group of ladies to work with! I certainly want to thank the following Ex-Division Presidents for all the advice and help I received: Eathel Short; Sandra Shell; Christine Smith; Virginia Kobler; Mary Ann Ezell; Ann King and Donna Clark. I can't name everyone, for fear I would leave someone out, but I want to thank everyone for your suggestions and help you offered during my two year term. 

I look forward to seeing all of you in about two weeks!
In UDC love,
Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
