Hello Everyone! 5/28/21
First, thanks to all of you who attended the State Convention this past weekend! It was so good to see all of you again!
I'm sure you are aware that the National Convention will be in Ohio this year at Kalahari Resort in Sandusky August 14-20. Hopefully you will consider taking advantage of this opportunity to attend a National Convention! If you do attend please consider volunteering to help out in some capacity as it takes a great number of people to put on a successful convention. In order to entice you to give us a few hours of your time there are a few incentives:
A $400 stipend is offered for those Ohio members volunteering to help offset cost of hotel and registration.
Breakfast and lunch are provided each day you are working.
Registration is just $95 if you are a first time National Convention attendee. Even if you have attended before but this is your first time attending as a retiree. First timers must pay registration fee in advance using form from the Leader. After attending the convention they must submit a form to the National Office to be reimbursed. (By the way, they consider you a first timer if you haven't attended for at least 4 years! And if you are newly retired you can get this rate because you've never attended as a Retiree before!)
Also this year for the first time one day registration is being offered. It is a more affordable option if you are unable to attend the entire convention. One day rate is $65 if registering before June 15, $75 if after.
Convention Chairs Lou Stuckey and Mari Beth Kirkland and their committees are in the process of planning a week full of fun events, excursions and entertainment to keep us all busy! (And yes, educative classes and general sessions for those unfortunates who are not yet retired.)
This would be a perfect time to recruit new members! Anyone that joins March 1 - Aug 31 get one year free membership. Dues withholding will begin on 1 year anniversary. How great would it be to be able to go to a National Convention your first year - right here in Ohio! And our great State of Ohio is offering a $75 sign-up incentive to you when you sign on a new EAS employee! Take a friend along, make a road trip out of it and let's contact all those non-member offices! Vice President Alan Metzcar is compiling a list of all non-members and would be happy to connect you to those in your area. Please let him know if you would be willing to make some contacts. You can reach him at 330-897-7401; firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Hopefully you are all enjoying your lives and are staying healthy!
