Message From the President & CEO  
   
Hello Everyone,

I want to lead off this week with a personal invitation and respectfully ask that you join us, our team and our industry community as we gather October 11th at 3:00 pm for our Annual Meeting. We have a lot of meaningful and informative things planned this year, including taking full advantage of the amazing venue – the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. I’m personally thrilled that Nicole Henry has confirmed she’ll join us for a very touching performance. All of your $5.00 registration fee will be donated to the EasterSeals Society and to say thank you – the first drink at the post reception is on us.

Here again is the registration link.  Sincerely hope to see you at our Annual Meeting.
