Regional Meeting Planning Guides

Region 15 Clubs Considering Hosting a Summer or Fall Regional Meeting, 
Attached are PDF guides for hosting a Summer or Fall regional meeting. If you are considering hosting a regional meeting, these guides can be used to understand the process, as well as the individual tasks and pieces needed for planning and hosting a Summer or Fall event. Hopefully you will find this information useful, and a good guide.
As many of you know that have been a part of planning a regional meeting for your club in the past, these meetings are not as difficult to plan as they may first appear, and will be a fun event for your club.  They do require some early planning, and help from a number of club members in order to spread around the task load, but when the event gets there and the regional members arrive for the weekend of events, you will see a lot of appreciation, and hear a lot of thank-you's, which makes the planning and work that you did so worthwhile.
In addition, as we spread these Summer and Fall events around the region, it gives each of our regional clubs the opportunity to support the region, which is all of us individually, and helps fund the regional newsletter, The Hem-alina, we all enjoy, which is the primary expense for the region. And please do remember that The Hem-alina and  region does not have any other funding or income other than auctions at these meetings, and the generous donations made by many clubs within the region. Please do consider hosting a Summer or Fall meeting in the coming years.
