Save May 19 for Annual Meeting and Luncheon
Nothing ever stays the same, including the League.
In the past, we have had our Annual Meeting and Luncheon combined, with the luncheon including a speaker of more interest to the members than the guests and a meeting that didn’t interest the guests at all.
This year, we are trying something different.
We are having the meeting and luncheon at the Éilan Hotel on May 19, but the meeting will be first, and members have a choice.
They can attend the meeting at 10:30 a.m. at no cost, enjoy a cup of coffee, share in the work of the annual meeting, and then be free to leave; or pay for the luncheon, stay for a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting and hear Erika Prosper Nirenberg, a speaker of much interest to both members and guests. Meanwhile, guests can enjoy the lunch and speaker without having to sit through a business meeting.
We hope members will stay for the luncheon. Prosper is an inspiring speaker whose life has taken her from daughter of migrant farmworkers to chairwoman of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, director of customer insights for H-E-B, wife of Mayor Ron Nirenberg and mother of Jonah, 9. She has gotten to where she is today through determination and hard work. She has much to share that will resonate with everyone.
Cost for the luncheon is $50. For tickets, go to https://lwvsa2018.brownpapertickets.com/ or send a check to League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area, 106 Auditorium Circle, #120, San Antonio, TX 78205. Specify if you would like the vegetarian selection. Deadline for purchasing tickets is May 12.
You can put together a table of eight and enjoy the program with your friends. Bring a friend and introduce them to the League.
Reservations for the annual meeting alone are not necessary, but we would like an idea of how many people to expect. Remember, there is no cost for the meeting.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 210-657-2206 to RSVP for the meeting, and let us know you are coming to the meeting even if you are also attending the luncheon.
