Convention 2021 – Rescheduled   (8/28/2021)

Wow!!  What a couple of challenging years we are having.

The Board of Directors met in special session to assess the convention this fall in New Orleans.  Considering the potential for rapid spread of Covid 19, the board decided to change the place and format of the convention to a “mini-convention” in Cedar Key, Florida between October 7th and 11th.  Cedar Key was chosen to avoid crowds, minimize travel for Board Members, and increase overall safety.

This mini-convention will be be open to all current Silver Wings Fraternity members and include the required Annual Membership meeting, including election of Directors, and the Annual Board of Directors meeting.  It will be of short duration compared to our normal convention with, regrettably, very limited opportunity for social activities.

Watch for complete information, including registration instructions in the next issue of the Slipstream newsletter.

It should be understood by all that wish to attend that these plans may have to be changed on short notice based on the health risk to our members.
