COPA Regional Governors Meeting

by on Sep.21, 2014, under Flying

On Friday,September 19, 2014 five of the six COPA Region­al Gov­er­nors plus the North Cen­ter­al Regiona web mas­ter flew to Day­ton to meet face to face for the first time. Three arrived by Cir­rus and three came in com­mer­cial­ly and four of the six were accom­pa­nied by their wives. The work start­ed at five PM Fri­day when all gath­ered at the Williamson home for an hour long webi­nar on inter­net based tools put on by the COPA IT Chair­man John Yli­nen. The ladies left for din­ner at a local restau­rant and the the­ater. After the webi­nar the Gov­er­nors relaxed for a cock­tail then head­ed for din­ner at a local steak house.

Sat­ur­day the we met at Car­il­lon Park Admin­is­tra­tion build­ing con­fer­ence room at 8:30. The meet­ing cov­ered a com­pre­hen­sive agen­da with very active par­tic­i­pa­tion by all. The objec­tive was to take what had been learned in putting on Region­al events over the past two years and take it to the next lev­el. We broke for lunch, then took a short tour of the Wright Broth­ers exhib­it at Car­il­lon Park before resum­ing the meet­ing for anoth­er con­cen­trat­ed four hours of work. At 5:30 PM we trav­eled from the meet­ing site to Haswthorn Hill the Wright Broth­ers man­sion to meet the ladies and par­tic­i­pate in a pri­vate tour. The ladies had spent the day first vis­it­ing the Car­il­lon park muse­um, then a local out­door mall for lunch and some shop­ping and final­ly relaxed at the Williamson home. Katie the His­tor­i­cal Soc­i­ty guide did a great job of bring­ing the Wright Broth­ers man­sion to life dur­ing the tour. After a quick turn around fresh­en up stop, the group met at Moraine Coun­try Club for the clos­ing din­ner. It turned out that it was Lob­ster night and every­one enjoyed steamed fresh main lob­ster and got the oppor­tu­ni­ty to cel­e­brate Giuseppe’s birth­day as a bonus. It was a jol­ly din­ner that capped off a very pro­duc­tive and intense day and a half of work.

Sun­day morn­ing the Gov­er­nors took to the air for their return. Every­one indi­cat­ed it was time well spent and we shared enthu­si­asm that the pro­gram will move for­ward with increas­ing success.
