It is with much enthusiasm, excitement, and energy that I invite you to the 40th Syn-Lod of Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc., June 23-29, 2017 in St. Louis, Missouri, at the beautiful St. Louis Union Station Hotel.
The Investing Team, with the help of the Area III South Cluster Chapters, is planning an exciting adventure for you as you travel to the “home of the Golden Arches.” The adventure is so exciting that it is still unfolding, so we are all in for some surprises. J What we do know is that there will be something for everyone and no one will leave disappointed. There will be learning experiences, volunteer opportunities, networking opportunities, and recognition of outstanding service. We will also have some very “special” guests.
For your planning, Syn-Lod will open on Friday afternoon with Institutes and Workshops. The Official Joint Opening Session is Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., but please take a look at the tentative agenda to see what you will miss if you choose to come in on Sunday. J As usual, it is strongly suggested that Chapter Presidents, 1st and 2nd VP’s, TTA Advisors/Assistant TTA Advisors, and Financial Officers attend the Institutes since this is an election year and most chapters will have new officers. Workshops will be planned to assist incoming officers and committee chairs with developing and implementing the necessary tools to be successful. Members are encouraged to take advantage of all of the leadership and learning opportunities that will be offered.
Some highlights of Syn-Lod 2017 are: Community Beautification Nature Walk; Honorary Induction; TLOD/TTA Choir Mini Concert; Ecumenical Brunch with “Special” Guest; Silent Auction; TTA Recognition Breakfast; TTA Networking Event; Lord’s Appreciation Luncheon; Ruby Five Star Programming Luncheon; Caregivers Forum; Community Awards Night; Health Fair/Healthy Choices; TTA College & Career Fair; Presentation of New Ladies; Pink & Silver Ball; and “Jamming in the STL.”
For your travel and hotel information, the hotel site is 15 minutes from the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. The hotel does not provide shuttle service. The cost of a cab is $30.00. We are looking into additional transportation options and will provide that at a later date. A more comprehensive registration booklet with additional pertinent information will be available as plans unfold. Please make hotel reservations as soon as possible so that additional rooms may be added to the block, if necessary.
By your attendance at Parliamen-Top 2015 and 2016, you have let me know that you are thirsty for knowledge and have the desire to move your chapters forward. Please continue that commitment by “Meeting me in St. Louis” June 23-29, 2017 as we continue “Investing in V.A.L.U.E.S. that Support, Enhance, and Sustain.”
