AFMS Annual Meeting/Convention Update!

As many of you have been reading over the last few days, there are still major problems in the Houston area following Hurricane Ike. Our host hotel, Comfort Suites, cannot guarantee that they will have the rooms many of us have reserved available. Calling other hotels in the area, has resulted in the same response - namely that they are not taking reservations and cannot guarantee those that they have.

After much thought and deliberation, I have regretfully decided to cancel the meetings in Humble. The AFMS Bylaws provide for emergency situations such as this. We will be conducting our "new business" via a mail ballot which will be sent out shortly.

I apologize for the late notification, but this has been an agonizing decision to make. I do not want any of us to arrive in Houston and find that a) we do not have lodging and b) a quorom.

Shirley Leeson
AFMS President

Special Note: The show and South Central Convention will go on as planned. The SCFMS annual meeting, awards dinner and Breakfast with the Editors will go off as scheduled as will the show itself at the Humble Civic Center.
