Greetings Fellow Members,
I hope that you all have had a safe and productive fall. I want to thank everyone who attended our Meet the Candidates General Membership Meeting last month at Crystal Grand. I especially want to thank all of the candidates that came out to introduce themselves to our members. I for one am glad that we have such intelligent and well-spoken people in Springfield watching out for our industry. I would like to personally thank the new members who attended the meeting and welcome you to the SSHBA.
I would also like to thank those of you who have advertised in our Southern Exposure newsletter this year. Our newsletter is a great way to expose your business to members and gain new business. Please contact Shannon or Marcella tt the SSHBA Office if you are interested in advertising opportunities for 2015. I would like to thank
Steve Peca for his continuous dedication to this publication as chairman of the newsletter and directory committee.
Looking forward to the rest of fall and the upcoming winter, I hope to see you all at the upcoming Inaugural Ball on December 5th at the Public Landings in Lemont. This is a fun event that serves an important function for the Association, as this is when our leadership is sworn into their respective offices. It is also a great event for members to bring their spouses or significant other to enjoy a fine dinner and a night of dancing. I look forward to seeing you all there.
Have a safe and fun Thanksgiving!
E Jason Paliatka
