Dear fellow LAP members and friends,
It is my extreme pleasure, and duty per the bylaws, to announce the LAP biennial meeting scheduled for March 23, at 11:30am in Gonzales, LA in our own private meeting and dining facility. Additionally, before the meeting we will have two parliamentary education programs and conclude the meeting with a delicious lunch buffet and presentation from what has been going on with the State, District, and National Association.
The required item of business at this meeting will be the election of officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.) If you are interested in running for any of the positions, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to explain any of the roles and responsibilities as best I know. Or if you know someone you would recommend for a position and you would like for me to possibly give them a friendly nudge to accept your nominations, I'd be happy to make the solicitation.
Although you do not have to pay to attend the business meeting, the cost for the lunch and educational programs is $20 per person (guests welcome) and pre-payment is required. I encourage you to submit your payment by purchasing a ticket through EVENTBRITE ( http://lap2013.eventbrite.com/ ), but if you would like to pay by check, please mail payment to LAP Treasurer Rita Bezou at PO BOX[masked], Kenner, LA 70064-1474. All payments must be received by March 19th.
If you need any special food arrangements, please let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate. If you plan on only attending the meeting, please purchase the free "Meeting Only Ticket"
