It is my pleasure to serve as your 2016-2017 SBEA President. Thank you for entrusting me in this extremely important role. On behalf of the Southern Business Education Association Executive Board, we welcome you as a member of our regional professional organization. We are steadily working to plan a wonderful convention in the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia. Did you know that Savannah is Georgia’s first city with one of the nation’s largest national historic districts? Did you know that our conference hotel is located within that lovely historic district? We are shaking things up a bit this year and offering tours at night and a swap shop during one of our interest session times. I promise, this is one convention you do not want to miss!
SBEA is a wonderful convention to network and grow professionally. I now look at my SBEA colleagues as my extended family. I would like to encourage each of you to get involved and take an active role within our wonderful organization. There is an opportunity for each and every one of you. We have several committees that needs great team members. Consider presenting on those great ideas you are implementing in the classroom. Take advantage of our networking luncheon to meet new people. The opportunities are endless!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have regarding SBEA. I hope to see you October 25-28, 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.
