2010 Chapter Meetings Set

The next 2 APG-Florida Chapter meetings for 2010 have been set and the final meeting is tentatvely established:

1 May - Donna Moughty has booked Lakewood Ranch Town Hall, 8175 Lakewood
Ranch Boulevard, Lakewood Ranch FL, 34202 from 9:00 - 12:00.

Donna's directions : " It's quite easy to find, just a short distance off I-75 Exit 213 in Sarasota. Off the exit head east approx. 1 mile to Lakewood Ranch Blvd. Turn left and go about .5 miles - Town Hall is on your right."

Following the business meeting, Donna will preview the topic that she will be presenting at this year's PMC - "Expand Your Revenue: Produce and Sell Your Lectures in Video Format."

She also assures me that there are a number of good choices for lunch just across the parking lot from the Town Hall.

14 August - P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Business Meeting at 9:30am - they will provide us a room - followed by a Library staff presentation on their holdings, what is coming online soon, etc. Following that will be a tour of their facility and holdings - and especially their newspaper operations.
Please note, though, that this is the 2nd Saturday in August rather than our traditional 1st - the first Saturday, August 7th, is U of F's summer graduation. Everyone will be notified of the building and room numbers as soon as they are provided by the Library's Curator.

November - Probably the 13th. Per tradition, this meeting will be held during the FSGS Conference, in the Conference venue.  The location has not been finalized, but it will be somewhere on the Southwest Florida coast, such as Sarasota, Bradenton, etc. Additonal info will be forthcoming when details are received.
