National Council Meeting

0 Comment

Five members from the Tennessee Chapters of the DBE attended the National Council Meeting in Chicago, Illinois on May 8th and 9th. In total there were 72 ladies at the meeting representing members from all over the country. The National Board did a wonderful job of organizing the weekend and making it a very worthwhile event. The meetings were informative and provided more insight to gain a better understanding of the “big picture” and the focus on a strategic plan to grow the organization by recruiting new members. During our time in Chicago, we also took a tour of one of the four homes that the Society supports, visited the British Consulate’s home for a cocktail party and attended a banquet on the last night.

Next year the Meeting will be held in St. Louis and many of us hope to attend.

Most definitely the Tennessee members, and the husband’s who joined us, managed to find time to explore Chicago, including the Segway Tour, Boat Trips and very importantly taking advantage of the wonderful restaurants that Chicago has to offer. What a great weekend.

Come and join us in St. Louis, you will be glad you did!
