Jan. 05, 2014,

                Happy New Year!!!! I do hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year and are ready for a fantastic 2015!   Do stay warm and safe and hopefully you are avoiding the sickness that is going around by drinking plenty of fluids and getting plenty of Vitamin C.  

                We have our executive meeting coming up two weeks from Friday, Jan 23 and the District training on Saturday, Jan. 24 at Smyrna First United Methodist Church beginning at 9:30 am.   We have a block of rooms at Comfort Suites Smyrna, 3001 Highland Blvd., Smyrna, TN  ph 615-625-9000 for the 23rd.     Conference will pay for all conference officers and any district officers that feel it is too far to drive in on Saturday morning.   We must supply a rooming list by Jan. 16 to the motel so everyone that is planning to stay must contact Eileen Horton by phone or email as soon as possible. 

                Directions to the motel are  Exit 66 off I24 – Coming from Nashville the hotel is on the right side and coming from Murfreesboro the hotel is on the left.

                 We will meet at the Motel at 6:00 pm in the Conference room on Friday evening for the executive meeting and must be finished by 9:00 pm so we will order in Pizza and if anyone wants to bring snack foods or dessert to share, please do.        

                The District training will be a Smyrna First United Methodist Church – 301 Sam Davis Rd., Smyrna, TN 37167 – ph #615-459-2826 beginning at 9:30 am and will conclude at noon with a lunch.

                We should have the directory done by the training; however, we still need three of the district’s list of officers:   Clarksville, Cumberland, and Pulaski.    I would also like to change the date of one of our Exec. meetings from April 25 to April 11 or 18 but see another district has something scheduled on 18th and Clarksville District mission study is April 25 at my church.    We will need to decide that for sure.

The Mission u training in St. Louis dates were wrong in our annual meeting book and should show May 14 – 17 for those of you that will be attending.

                Here is an agenda for the meeting  and also the list of Conference officers .

                Remember we have a snow date the following weekend 1/30 and 1/31 which is also the youth Warmth in Winter so pray for good weather on Jan 23 and 24.

TN Conf. President           

PS – Be sure you have enough copies at least for Pres. and Secretary of the reports -  also, if you are bringing copies to hand out at the Training on Saturday, please have those copies made ahead.   There will be registration from 9:00 to 9:30 am and we will meet all together at 9:30 for our gathering and introduction of the theme and for devotions.    We will then break out the Treasurer,  Program Resources, and Nominations and they will all go to their separate locations.   The rest of us will stay together and have our training with all the rest of them but you can still have separate information to hand out and go over. 

Let me know if you have any questions or need anything or are unable to open the attachments  -   Eileen Vaughan is filling in for Sue C. Johnson right now and we need to be sure all the Nashville District has our support.

 Margaret A. Fisher, CFC
