A Message from Rick Nafe, SMA Program Chair

Nibbling on fast food...
Mask up through the drive thru...
Watchin' the news and it’s getting real old...
Fires on the West Coast...Hurricanes on the Gulf Coast
Even "I Dream of Jeannie" reruns are beginning to look old.

This was our world last year as we hoped to get to Margaritaville for our annual meeting and seminar. It was not to be as COVID locked us in.

However, due to the efforts of some very smart people, we went virtual and hit the airwaves with our 2021 Seminar.

We know the reasons...
Can't play our seasons... No hot dog, parking, or beer revenue!
It's a real beauty... a global-wide cutie...
Couldn't find anyone with even a clue.

We worked a deal with Margaritaville to return this year to safe conditions...details of those conditions were carefully decided by our COVID Task Force and SMA President Mario Couthino so be sure to read the information sent out as well as look to the SMA website for updates. We have a great program planned and a great line-up of speakers, a stadium tour, a beautiful moonlit cruise...and maybe...dare I say it? An appearance from the Goodyear Blimp?

You know our programs...you know our people and you know our purpose...to Network...Educate and Involve. How can you be in our business and not be there?

Join us February 13th through the 17th...Valentine's Day at SMA!
That's beautiful...
