SNR Conference April 2017


Soroptimist Members,

I invite you all to the Sierra Nevada 41st Annual Conference April 28 - 30, 2017.  We've made a few changes this year, so make sure to review the tentative agenda closely.  We've added a fun contest for Friday night, have some business to attend to on Saturday and honor our awardees on Sunday. So gather your fellow Soroptimist and head to Reno.  Check out all the details in the Call to Conference.  Our online registration website is ready for you all to sign up, see the link in the Call.

For those arriving a day early, you are welcome to attend the 3rd Board Meeting of this biennium.  If you are interested in the management of the region, you will find this interesting.  If this isn't your thing, I'm sure the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa has something for you.

Hope to see you in April...

Governor Vicki

Top 10 Reasons to Attend Region Conference 
Top 10 Reasons to Attend Region Conference 
 

 

#10.  Expand your Soroptimist Experience
#9. Great Location/Food/Accommodations/Spa 
#8. Guest Speakers
#7. Entertainment

#6.   Learn what the Region does to support our clubs

Did you know that it takes over 70 volunteers to run this region? On Saturday we will hear from a lot of those volunteers and learn what is happening in their areas. The reason that we have these positions to support the clubs, so come hear what they are doing and how they can help your club.  We will also be electing new representatives to the Nominating Committee, as well as voting on revisions to the Fiscal Standing Rules.  This afternoon is the reason that we convene for annual Conference, so join us and learn more about your Sierra Nevada Region.



EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!....  GET YOUR ROOM RESERVATIONS EARLY!!!

I guess I’m really dating myself with that intro!  In case you missed it, thanks to the ‘nudging’ from the Las Vegas clubs, we have opened up the room block early at the Altantis for 2017 SNR CONFERENCE.  The dates are April 28-30, 2017.  We will be on the same weekend as the Volleyball tournament, so making room reservations early is a great idea!! 

Just go to this link: https://www.atlantiscasino.com/reserve.html?g=SOROP17&d=042617&n=4 and use the code: SOROP17

Remember that is if you need to cancel your room reservation in the future for any reason, do not cancel directly with the hotel or online.  Contact me directly and I will have your room (s) moved back into our SNR ‘block’ so that other Soroptimists may reserve them.

Watch for the upcoming series of posts:  ’10 Reasons you should come to Conference this year’ to learn why this is the year to add Region Involvement to your Soroptimist experience! For those of you that always attend conference, can’t wait to see you all again!

As we are starting to enjoy the cooler weather of Fall and think about the upcoming holiday season, I just know you are also thinking of SNR Conference April 2017.  If you are an early planner, I have good news for you.  You can make your hotel reservations at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa now.  We are trying many new things and this is one of them. 
 
The volleyball competition will be going on at the same time as our Conference, so the hotel will get sold out.  Why wait until the deadline or run the chance of a hotel sell out?  You can secure your stay at the Atlantis by clicking on this link https://www.atlantiscasino.com/reserve.html?g=SOROP17&d=042617&n=4 and entering the code SSNVR17.  Over the next several months, you will hear about the exciting Conference we have in store of all of our members.  If you have already made your reservation outside of our group, I suggest you contact Conference Coordinator Lane and she will have your reservation moved to the Soroptimist room block.
 
Just remember that if you need to cancel in the future, please do not cancel directly with the hotel or online.  Contact our Conference Coordinator Governor-Elect Lane Parks and she will have your room moved back into our SNR block so another Soroptimist may reserve it. 
 
Hope to see you at Conference on April 28-30, 2017.
