2013 Annual Meeting

The annual South Central District meeting will be held 23-24 August at the DoubleTree (Downtown) in Tulsa, OK. The events on Friday commence with a Candidate's Forum, reception, and a banquet (business attire). The President General will be invited and his keynote speech is presented on Friday evening. Check back for the registration form.

The program on Saturday includes a breakfast meeting followed by the business session. The primary purpose of the business meeting is to endorse a slate of candidates, including the SCD Vice President General to be elected at the next Congress. The host normally takes a period of time to describe "What's Working" in their society. Tradition hold that the meeting is concluded by Noon.

The host is rotated among the state societies. The 2013 meeting will be hosted by the Oklahoma Society followed by Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri.

ATTENTION Candidates seeking an endorsement from the South Central District at the annual meeting on 23-24 August 2013 in Tulsa, OK.

The campaign and endorsement process will be the same as in past years.

A 3 minute campaign speech may be made at the Candidate's Forum on Friday afternoon, 23 August 2013. This presentation may be made by the candidate or his proxy.

Nominations for endorsement will take place at the Business meeting on Saturday morning, 24 August 2013. There must be a nomination followed by a second. No speeches (that's what was done on Friday afternoon). Should there be two candidates for office, a secret ballot will be cast by compatriots holding a primary membership in the South Central District.
