The Southwestern District concluded a successful and enjoyable Spring Convention in San Antonio this past May.
There have been numerous discussions about the viability of another Convention next spring due to financial constraints. I am pleased to let you know that our 2019 San Antonio gathering was successful in all aspects, including financial, and that everyone seemed to enjoy the experience. Some commented it was the best Spring Convention in many years.
Based on these positive results, the Executive Team, C&J Team and the Events Team have made the decision to again hold our 2020 Convention at the Doubletree Hotel and on the campus of UTSA.
The necessary contracts have been signed. The dates will be April 30, May 1 and 2, 2020 at the same venue as this year. We wanted all participants to be aware of these actions so plans can be made to join the fun and fellowship next year. More detailed information will be forthcoming from the teams, especially C&J, as we start the planning process.

My sincere thanks to all who attended and participated in the gathering in San Antonio. It's a great venue and we look forward to an even better Convention in 2020.
