TSA Regional Meeting in Reno, NV — YOU ARE INVITED!
The Spaatz Association will be hosting its’ first-ever regional meeting coincident with the CAP National Convention in Reno, Nevada. In response to suggestions for additional outreach to our membership TSA will launch a series of regionally-based meetings throughout our 2006/2007 programming year. The intent of your Board of Directors is to make our organization more accessible and provide meaningful fraternal opportunities for Spaazten everywhere.
The meeting will feature an information update on TSA’s recent activities by leaders from your Board of Directors. It will be followed by a round-table discussion on ways and means to make TSA more relevant to it’s members. We will challenge both the creativity and the leadership of those present to become champions for TSA programs and initiatives.
A visit by the National Advisory Council is also scheduled. Brig. Gen. Rich Anderson, CAP — both a former CAP National Commander and National President of The Spaatz Association – is working with the NAC; all of whom are former CAP National Commanders. This will be a special opportunity for Spaatzen to meet this dynamic group of iconic CAP leaders.
A table has been reserved for Spaatzen attending the CAP banquet later that evening as a social event. TSA Director Marla Patterson is the program coordinator for that event.
Spaazten attending the CAP National Convention and the surrounding area are invited to join us in Reno at the Ascuaga Casino and Resort on Saturday, 12 August 2006. We will convene in the Southern Pacific Room A/G from 1300-1600 hours.
