The deep roots of this organization were obvious to all in attendance when longtime influential member John Longyear delivered a heartwarming and poignant speech during Wednesday night’s Mardi Gras themed dinner. At the same time the wings this organization is growing were visible as several new, young, and dynamic members listened intently to Mr. Longyear speak of his gratitude and appreciation for his years spent with the SFA. Colonel for an afternoon cruise. Though the cruise started in a heavy fog reminiscent of the movie The Pirates of The Caribbean, it burned off later to allow beautiful views of the Galveston Bay. After returning to the The Hilton Galveston Island Resort, attendees were treated to a Mardi Gras themed Cajun dinner and cocktail hour followed by karaoke in the hotel lobby. Finally, the fun continued with a Mardi Gras motif in the hospitality suite. The Spring Conference concluded on Thursday with an early morning round table discussion. A huge thank you to everyone who attended, sponsored, and made this conference possible. I truly can not wait until we can all get together again. There was an air of excitement and purpose as the members of the SFA met for the General Business Meeting on Wednesday morning and discussed a new vision and culture for the organization as they welcomed new Executive Director, Cari Bailey. The meeting culminated with an inspirational presentation from key note speaker Dr. Nathan Baxter of the organization Lead Self, Lead Others. Dr. Baxter spoke about the importance of culture in a business or organization. The association was so impressed with Dr. Baxter’s presentation that many members requested a follow up speech be arranged for a future event. After Dr. Baxter’s speech the attendees walked to Tortuga for lunch and caught a shuttle to Moody Gardens where they boarded the Paddleboat The ASSOCIATION ARTICLE DR.
