To Atlanta Branch Members,
Greetings! I am honored to be your new Branch President and look forward to a wonderful year of interesting and meaningful ESU sponsored events. By now you should have received a mailing from the New York national office that included a request for membership dues which asked each of us to submit our 2023-2024 dues or Patron payments. Please consider not only renewing your Membership, but also becoming a National Sponsor or Patron. I know we all want to have a first class Branch.
On June 23 we had a meeting of your new Board. I am really pleased with the interest and enthusiasm of the Board Members. Our Branch website has been updated with new photos and upcoming events thanks to Adam Ogburn, Board Member and Treasurer. We still have a lot of work to do, but I believe that we have the right people on the Board to make the needed progress. Plans are underway for some great programs next year.
First of all, the ESU Annual Conference will be held in Kansas City, Missouri on October 20th – 22nd. Sign up early and get your hotel reservations at the Kansas City Crown Center. The ESU National website has all of the relevant information as well as the schedule of events. You are invited!
In addition to our large traditional events, such as our Luncheons with Distinguished Speakers, and the Holiday party; The ESU Atlanta Branch continues to organize the yearly Shakespeare Competition, Boyce Ansley School programs and T-Lab Scholarship programs.
We are looking to add other events. Would you like to have a book club, and supper club? Help lead the Club's growth by contributing your idea for an event. If you call me with your idea, I will direct you to the appropriate Committee Chairs.
Support these events, stay involved, and continue your adventure at the ESU!
Susan Phillips, President
ESU, Atlanta Branch
