Mon 08/20/2018 Region VI 2018 Region VI Business Meeting

BTMF and IABTI are hosting a Technology Expo at the Huntsville Marriott Space & Rocket Center, August 20th and 21st beginning at 5pm each day. To register for a table at this event, please click here: BTMF/IABTI Expo

Region VI will be conducting their annual business meeting the evening of August 20th, from 1700-1800 hours CST. During this meeting we will be accepting nominations for Region VI Director as well as nominations for 3rd International Director. All are welcome to attend, but if you can’t make it you can call either my cell or David Bebout’s cell between 5-6pm to bring a motion. Or you can email during that time frame with your motion. We will publish the results electronically that evening.

Please accept my apologies for the lack of a regional event this year, we had to act in a manner that is most beneficial to Region VI and the IABTI.
