Annual Meeting Thanks and Follow-Up Info

There is no bigger thanks from our association exec attendees than scheduling your OWN meeting in Athens, GA!
Huge thanks to the imaginative ATHvenger hosts of our 2016 GSAE Annual Meeting – Missy Brandt Wilson and Rita Lowery, Athens CVB; Katherine Puckett, The Classic Center; Abby Hicks, Hotel Indigo Athens; Taylor Eson and Devin Heath, Graduate Athens.
Silent Auction & Pay the Pig Raffle
Thanks so much to our Silent Auction donors who helped us raise more than $12,000 to support GSAE’s educational programming. We have two items still up for grabs, contact Jane Anne if you’re interested:
- Digital Landscape Assessment from Kellen
- Two-night weekend stay with breakfast at Holiday Inn & Suites Atlanta Airport North (black out dates apply)

Your generosity helped us raise more than $3,200 to support the good work of Bread for Life through the 4th Annual GSAE 3K Fun Run/Walk and the Pay the Pig Raffle (just wait for 2017 ... LKS, CAE is in charge of the next Pay the Pig Team). 
Congratulations to David Ellis, CAE on winning the raffle (Mike Davis from YourMembership gave him a run for his $100 worth of tickets)
