Summer is over and its time to get back to work. Its strange that even after being retired for several years I still see September as the start of a new year! This year, Region 1 and Region 2 are joining together to host a Leadership Development Workshop at the Best Western Hotel in Johnson City NY. Set aside the dates of Sept 28-30 and join us. There is no charge for registration! Room rates are from 54 for single rooms up to 74 for quads! The hotels phone number is 607-729-9194. Don Pendley and Jim Blackmore are giving a special presentation on communication and public relations. Other topics include local group needs, proctoring and local group web pages. Hope to see you there. Please contact me if youre coming so we can make sure theres enough to eat! Betsyb4@aol.com
Region 1 should congratulate its winners of the Publications Recognition Awards given out at the AG this summer. The Beacon of Boston won for best calendar section and Northern New Jerseys was given a special recognition for its Not for Parents Only. Boston Mensa also won for its web page on local gatherings! Thanks to all the editors, webmasters and contributors for their hard work.
Id also like to thank Jerry Riley for all the help hes given Region 1 through the years, especially as a past RVC and webmaster extraordinaire. Jerry and Donna have moved to California. I know theyll be happy there but Region 1 will miss both of them.
