83rd League Annual Meeting Moved to May Timeframe — 1/29/19
Charleston Marriott will serve as host hotel
The 2019 League Annual Meeting will held be in May rather than the normal time frame of mid-April. The original plan was to hold it in on April 11-13, but The Embassy Suites in Charleston informed the League in December that their hotel would be undergoing extensive renovations during our scheduled time there.
“We had planned to hold it in April as usual, but The Embassy Suites in Charleston informed us in December that their hotel would be undergoing extensive renovations during our scheduled time there,” explained League President Ken Watts in an email to credit unions. “The work would impact sleeping rooms, meeting rooms, and food service. Consequently, it became necessary to secure another site.”
Several alternate hotels and dates were explored for the meeting. After careful analysis of available options, we are pleased to announce that the 2019 League Annual Meeting will take place on May 16-18 at the Charleston Marriott Town Center, a block away from the Embassy Suites. The Charleston Marriott hosted the League Annual meeting for nearly 30 years up until 2012 when Morgantown was chosen as an alternative site. In recent years, the Embassy Suites has served as the meeting headquarters.
In the coming weeks credit unions will be receiving the normal information regarding the Annual Meeting, including the Official Call with room reservation details and schedule of events, though a little later than in previous years. The Annual report will be mailed 30 days prior to the meeting.
“We are planning an exciting line up of speakers, events, and entertainment for the 2019 League Annual Meeting and look forward to having your credit union join in the activities at the Charleston Marriott May 16-18,” Watts stated.
