GSAE annual meeting wrap up
GSAE MEMBERS AND guests visited the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina for the Annual Meeting this year.
Hosted by the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Francis Marion Hotel, attendees enjoyed
workshops, breakouts and keynote speakers geared to help them connect with other members, advance their
organizational goals and achieve professional success.
A huge thank you to our volunteers, especially members of the Meet & Greet Committee, the Registration team,
Professional Development Committee, Table Host Committee and the Silent Auction Committee. Finally, thank you
to Mike Giles for his inspiring and comforting words about two amazing GSAE members - Clare B. Reagan, CAE
and Peggy Seigler, MPA, CDME - during Thursday's lunch.
Because of the Silent Auction committee members' diligence and your donations and bids, we raised more than
$9,200 to support GSAE's educational programming. Your generosity also helped us raise nearly $2,300 to support
the good work of the Medical University of South Carolina Children's Hospital through the 3rd Annual GSAE 3K
Fun Run/Walk and the Pay the Pig Raffle.
Make plans to join us June 1-3, 2016 in Athens, Georgia for the 2016 Annual Meeting.
