The Summit

About this event

It's time for the Great Lakes Division Spring Training Conference on Friday, March 2, and be sure to come in time for the not-to-be-missed Friday Night Social March 1. Registration for the Conference is $30 a person and includes the in-demand Shigs 'n Pit buffet everyone craves. Friday night's social is $10 for all the amazing Casa d'Angelo pasta you can eat again this year. Here's the newest enhanced schedule: GLD Spring Training Schedule2024 CURRENT 2-15-2024.pdf

Our superb GLD specialty leaders and members are offering a ton of valuable 2024 sessions. And these 8 National office team members will join us – Mike Cobb, Chris Robbins, Rick Myers, Andrew Benagh, Jon Krolewicz, John Hunter, Kathy Barnes, Kristen Poole –to offer sessions in their specialties and listen to members.If you have a session you’d like to see hosted – or you want to host a session – reach out and let Val know (see below).

Spring Training Conference will be held in Fort Wayne, in a new location, The Summit, an amazing corporate setting (1025 W. Rudisill Blvd, Fort Wayne, IN 46708). We’ve got the entire facility for GLD – it’s all on one floor for full accessibility, with an auditorium, ample large classrooms, open spaces for gathering, and a ton of extras, including the highest technology in every room. It’s surrounded with parking and easy to find in the city. Check out The Summit by clicking here: https://eventsatthesummit.com/meetings-events/meetings/

We've secured a block of guest rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn at the I-69/US 24 exchange on the southern end of Fort Wayne (8615 US 24 West Fort Wayne, Indiana 46804). Reserve by Feb 24; after that, availability is not ensured. NOTE that the set-up link automatically includes both Fri and Sat evenings, so if you only want Friday night, be sure to update the stay dates at the top. After using "Edit" to update the specific nights on the calendar, then be sure to click "Select" just to the right so it makes the change before choosing King or 2Queen room. Reservation Link: https://www.hilton.com/en/book/reservation/deeplink/?ctyhocn=FWAFEGI&groupCode=GLDIV&arrivaldate=2024-03-01&departuredate=2024-03-03&cid=OM,WW,HILTONLINK,EN,DirectLink&fromId=HILTONLINKDIRECT,

The Friday Night Social will be 6:00-9:00 at the same Hilton Garden Inn with the guest room block: at the I-69/US 24 exchange on the southern end of Fort Wayne (8615 US 24 West Fort Wayne, Indiana 46804). Italian food provided; BYOB.

All day Saturday we’ll have the Information Table again, so if your region or you have something to share, pass out, give-away, etc, start gathering now. This will be a great place for a Region Event Schedule or an Event Promotion Flier, for example. Yes, this is separate from the Silent Auction!

We’ll offer the Silent Auction again, too. Think about an item(s) you might want to donate, then put it on the list to bring with you. Last year we had motorsports memorabilia, hand-crafted designs, race ties, specialty creations, jars of home-grown catnip ... each was fought over in ongoing bidding!  You will set a minimum bid (if desired) and be recognized as the donor. Proceeds will be split 50/50, half to Great Lakes Division, half to the SCCA Foundation. Contact Val for more information or simply bring your donated item(s) with you and we'll fill out an Auction Bid Sheet.

Watch for the agenda to be posted soon. IF YOU WANT to mail in your registration with a check, reach out to Val. QUESTIONS? E-mail or call/text Val McCammon (pyramid@bluebirdview.com; 260-437-6707)
