Southern District Organisers Meeting

1 Comment

Ten members of the DBE in Tennessee attended the Southern District Organiser’s meeting in St. Petersburg, Florida in October. We were greeted warmly by many of the Florida Chapter ladies and stayed in a hotel on gorgeous St. Pete Beach. To top it off, the weather could not have been more perfect for our stay.

We were joined by DBE members from Florida, Texas, Louisiana and South Carolina.On Friday night a dinner cruise was arranged for everyone and we had a really great time. It certainly was a super start to a busy, but enjoyable weekend. Saturday morning was the District Organiser’s meeting and each State was able to share their news and highlights of 2015. However, I have to say that the meeting’s real highlight was the report that Tennessee shared with everyone regarding ideas of how we plan to promote and grow the DBE membership in Tennessee. The ideas of our recently formed PR committee were met with enthusiasm from everyone at the meeting and we hope many of these ideas will be helpful to all our Southern District Chapters.

On Saturday evening the State President of Florida hosted an evening around the pool at the condo complex where she lives and it gave everyone another chance to spend time together. The Tennessee ladies finished their evening at the hotel around the Tiki Bar!! What fun!!

On Sunday many of the attendees left for home, but we stayed on to enjoy one more “day at the beach in Florida”. There is a rumor that next year the SDOM will take place on a cruise. Please consider joining us. This provides us with the time to meet and work towards a common goal of celebrating and strengthening this organisation!!
