2014 Lexington National | FOHBC General Membership Meeting


2014 Lexington National | FOHBC General Membership Meeting

06 August 2014


Apple-Touch-IconAThe FOHBC General Membership Meeting at the Lexington National occurred from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm on Friday, 01 August 2014. This is our traditional event to connect personally with our membership. I thought I would share a few of FOHBC Photographer, Scott Selenak’s, fine pictures. During the meeting, we gave an overview of the show, counted FOHBC election ballots, reviewed the major bullet points from the prior, 4 hour, FOHBC Board Meeting, and had a question and answer session. I thought the following comment from Dar Furda (Oak Park, California) was rather nice:

“Greetings from Southern California. The General Membership Meeting was conducted with a thrust of energy and more informative than any I have previously attended. I came away with more of an understanding of the future direction of the organization. I inhaled the idea of making the national event even more enjoyable and informative to further entice attendance during future shows.”
