A message from our Southwest Section Governor – Pat Chan

Fall 2020
Pat ChanAs a new term begins for the recently elected Southwest Section Board of Directors, we are pleased to welcome the new Southwesterly Editor, Laura Del Favero.

This issue marks the rebirth of the official Southwest Section newsletter, The Southwesterly. We are all looking forward to having the Southwesterly resume a quarterly publication schedule.

Please join us in welcoming Laura Del Favero, southwesterly@sws99s.org.

The new term has also brought along the challenges of coping in a world struggling with the covid-19 pandemic. For us we had to do things differently as we adapted to the circumstance, we found ourselves in. We remain dedicated and determined to continue on with the business of the Southwest Section.

Our next SW Section meeting is the Tucson Online Fall Business Meeting. It is scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020. The business meeting begins at 11:00 AM PDT. Everyone is encouraged to join into the online meeting as early as possible.

We are continuing to make plans for the Winter Workshop to be held January 23, 2021. It is hosted by the Utah Chapter. If the health pandemic situation allows, we will have an in-person Winter Workshop at Salt Lake City, UT.

Reno High Sierra Chapter has plans set for the Spring SW Section Meeting to be held on April 8 – 11, 2021. We are hoping that the health pandemic will have been resolved enough for us all to get together again.

Stay safe,

Pat Chan
