104 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK SOUTHEASTERN FASTENER ASSOCIATION PO Box 448, Elba, AL 36323 TEL 847-370-9022 FAX 847-516-6728 EMAIL WEB SEFA SPRING CONFERENCE SUCCESS! by Nancy Rich April 24-26, 2018 was a great couple of days for SEFA members gathering at Ross Bridge Resort in Birmingham, AL. Ross Bridge’s picturesque location created a very comfortable relaxing atmosphere for attendees. Attendees arrived on the 24th for an opening reception where they met with old friends, some whom they may not have seen since last year’s event, as well as meeting new members who joined the group. Between he camaraderie and the food, drinks, casino night, there was plenty of activity for the evening. Those who managed not to lose all their “free gambling money” had the opportunity to win prizes, including free golf at Ross Bridge, at the end of the night. The next day began with lunch and a golf outing at the famous, on sight, Robert Trent Jones Ross Bridge Golf Course. With this being the longest course in the world, golfers enjoyed the challenges, luckily with perfect weather. After golf, dinner with awards and recognitions proved to be a great finish to a nice day. SEFA took the opportunity to recognize and thank past Chairwoman Carrie King (we missed her last year as she decided to give birth the day before the event) and outgoing Chairman Terry Windham. Both have proven to be great leaders for SEFA and continue to be involved with Terry rejoining the Board for another term. Hayden Gaston, the youngest SEFA President, was recognized for his past year of leading SEFA and being instrumental in assisting with new ideas at the conference. A silent auction and a 50/50 raffle brought in funds for the scholarship fund thanks to the generosity of the conference participants.
