Just as a head’s up, the hotel’s breakfast is NOT complimentary. Kinda sucks, but there are a number of great alternatives closeby. Please click the following links for food and coffee options, the latter likely to be very helpful for that early morning caffeine fix.

Thursday

Arrive at Holiday Inn Georgetown. Check in time is 4pm. Activities TBD, so take the time to unwind and do some sightseeing, or whatever the heck else you want to do. I’m not the boss of you!

 

Friday

Let the fun begin! There are three meeting rooms in the hotel, all in close proximity to each other.

 

8am-9am: Alumni Association meeting. This meeting is only slated to last an hour. For an agenda, click here.

9am-12pm: Committee meetings in Meeting Rooms 1 & 2. Scrapbooks will be on display in Meeting Room 3 at this time.

12pm-1pm: Lunch Break. Brotherhood lunch ideas TBD.

1pm-6pm: Board of Trustees meeting from 1pm to 4pm, National Executive Committee meeting from 4pm to 6pm in Meeting Room 1. National Scholarship Management Committee meeting from 1pm to 3pm in Meeting Room 2. Scrapbooks will be on display in Meeting Room 3 until 6pm.

6pm onward: No confirmed plans at this time.

 

Saturday

8am-12pm: General Assembly in the Banquet Room. As always, there will be a refreshments table for a quick recharge.

12pm-1pm: Lunch Break. Brotherhood lunch ideas TBD.

1pm-5pm: More General Assembly. This is total conjecture at this point, but 5pm might be a “hard off” time, as we call it in the broadcast world. Banquet will be happening in this same room, and staff will likely need to set up and convert the room into a different setting, so be prepared.

5pm-7pm: General Assembly overflow in a hotel room if necessary? I would be more than happy to volunteer my room for this, as long as people don’t mind sitting on dressers and such.

7pm-9pm: Banquet. Does what it says on the tin.

9pm onward: Enjoy the free time!

 

Sunday

Check out is at 12pm. You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here… unless you re-upped your rez’.
