Howzit Region 7!!!

We are starting my favorite season of the year, the beginning of baseball (MLB) season.  I hope that everyone is doing great and looking forward, instead of being haunted by the last couple of years.  Although things are not good in some parts of the world, please make the effort to ensure you’re enjoying life in your part of the world.

Yesterday is gone, and

Tomorrow may never come.”

The 2022 Annual Meeting will be held live and is scheduled for August 10-12, in Fort Worth, Texas.  ASATT will be looking to try add some new innovative things.  Change is good…

I’m looking to have one virtual meeting and possibly one live meeting in Region 7 this year.  I have had SO many requests from our vendors to hold the Hawaii Meeting live.  With all of the chaos that this pandemic has created, they are hoping to see their customers again.  Remember, Region 7 held the last live meeting on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in Oregon.  The meeting was coordinated by Gary West. 

At this point I hope that a majority you have already been vaccinated.  It’s still your choice, but we still need to vigilant and not completely let our guards down.  Many of the pandemic PPE/supply problems have been drastically reduced, but it’s not where anyone can feel “safe”.  Please stay vigilant with the next different waves of Covid variations spreading around the United States and the world.  Ensure that you’re protecting yourselves to the fullest.  Stay safe and take care!!!
