Dear AHEPA Family,
Knoxville is pleased to host once again the AHEPA District One Midwinter Conference
this upcoming March 1-3, 2013
. For those of you who attended the Midwinter Conference in Knoxville in 2010, we hope fond memories of that weekend will entice you to return for this year's conference. For those of you who will be making your first trip to Knoxville for a midwinter conference, we equally look forward to welcoming you and hosting you and your families for a relaxing and fun-filled weekend of activities and fellowship.
Two important deadlines to keep in mind as you make your plans for March 1-3. First, hotel reservations must be made by February 1
in order to obtain the AHEPA rate for the weekend at the downtown Knoxville Hilton. We have negotiated a very competitive rate - $99/night plus free parking
- that will only be available through February 8, so please be sure to go ahead and make your hotel reservations now. Second, the deadline for submission of ads
for the conference commemorative album book is February 1. We encourage all of our AHEPA and Daughters chapters, as well as our District AHEPA housing corporations, to purchase ads to support our local chapter's efforts to host this year's midwinter conference and to continue our charitable outreach efforts at our church, community, and diocese level. Please keep these deadlines in mind as you make your plans.
All of this information is contained in the flyers
accompanying this welcome letter. Please make every effort to forward the flyers to everyone in your chapters as well as others who may be interested in attending. We are hard at work planning social events, together with the midwinter basketball tournament, and once again the highlight of the weekend will be our Saturday night Apokreas dinner/dance celebration that our AHEPA chapter hosts annually for our local church community with plentiful food and live Greek-American band entertainment.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Knoxville on March 1-3 of this year!
Your Conference Chairs,
Christos Christopoulos and Tom Varlan
