"I decided a few years ago if I ever had the privilege of serving as convention chair, we would have to go to the desert. And what better place to go to than the “sunniest” city in America, Tucson, Arizona!"

Dear BBIA Member,

Is it really 2015?  Is it really time once again to get together?  Indeed it is!

Last time I wrote a letter to you for the BBIA we were packing up to head to Mississippi. Not this time. This time I write to you from the President’s chair of our organization asking you for your attendance at this year’s BBIA Convention.  It’s time once again for us to reconvene for a few days, along with other industry leaders, to do some brainstorming, problem solving, relationship building, serious discussing, partaking of great food, educating, hearing old stories from good friends, staying in awesome accommodations, laughing and having a little fun in the sun too.  I can’t wait to see each of you.

I would like to thank our current board members for their dedication to the goals of our organization. I am proud to have worked with them and I appreciate the time and energy each has given. As a member, I am also very thankful for their efforts on my behalf.

Our organization is crucial.  What happens during these meetings can change our industries. We reap what we sow … so please come, plant some seeds, voice your concerns, bring ideas, bring questions and bring answers.
Travel safely,

Joleen Lawson
