   5.  2013 TASA reunion committee report.
The three cities that have been referenced most by you (the members) are Dallas, Washington D.C., and Las Vegas.         
    In October the reunion committee will be announced, they will define the terms of the request for proposal that will then be provided to convention and visitors bureauss in the areas you have selected. The resulting proposals will be reviewed by the committee and a location selected on its merits.
There are many things to take into consideration such as destinations that can be supportive of our group; hotel rates (as an example, hotels in Las Vegas raise their rates dramatically for Friday and Saturday nights), distance from the airport, cost of food, and keep in mind that sometimes the attractions can be a distraction.
     For those of you who have not yet responded please let us know your preference for location by Sept 15th and whether you have an interest in serving on the 2013 TASA Reunion Committee please email Julie Secord Williams at Julie@williamsrealty.us or call her at 703-244-0084.
