The Southern Music Association meeting scheduled for 25 Feb
at 11:00 AM has been postponed. We will contact you shortly with
an alternate date for the meeting.
There are several things on the agenda:
*Developing both a Mission & Vision statement
*Electing officers and our wonderful Executive Director Edna Snowden sent out an email to our list. If you want to be on that list email her at email@example.com.
*Appointing PERMANENT committee chairs as previous chairs was until this meeting could be held
*Updating with Larry Woolard the retirement home for musicians being undertaken by SMA. Larry said in January meeting that there would have to be an initial $1,000,000 or more raised by SMA.
*Update on SEPARATE Southern Music Hall of Fame & Museum. There is has been some confusion about this and now it is clear that the SMHF & M is a FOR PROFIT organization owned by its co-founders.
So you can see there is a lot to cover at this meeting! YOU can either be there in person or attend by teleconference. More on teleconference in future post.
Yes according to the University of Mississippi Center for the Study of Southern Culture the states you see below are the OFFICIAL ones composing USA South and should be the ones that our Association recognizes.
Yes just another reminder that we have a Facebook Page and as of today we have 225 LIKES and 5 people talking about it!
Kudos to Board Member Rhetta for setting this up!
WOW! What progress was made and you can learn every thing that happened right HERE on this video!
Again THANK YOU to Paul Rader of West Side Cultural Arts Center for hosting our meeting at his AWESOME facility and we will be there again in JANUARY as we are skipping December.
Another THANK YOU to Edna, our current Executive Director, who does all the things to make these meetings successful!
Finally THANK YOU to Don Sherrill for producing the video of the meeting!
But the BIGGEST THANK YOU goes to all of you who have made Ron and I’s vision a REALITY!
ONWARD & UPWARD!
Yes our board member Rhetta graciously set up our new Facebook page and you need to go HERE and LIKE it! Then get all your friends at Facebook to do the same!
I was just reminded about this screwup in the next meeting date.
It is OCTOBER 23 at 11AM at Sandy Springs Library! Not 24th!
Limited to 100 people physically there.
Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend. Georgia Tech Interactive Tech Center will be making a presentation and we will also finalize Mission & Vision statements for organization.
So the BAD news is that even Ron and I can’t go to the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony because the GOOD news is that this first ever open to the public event is SOLD OUT! Kudos to Eddie Ray and his staff!
Next year Eddie will have to get a LARGER venue!
