Due to the success of the Group -- and the need for every member to get as much information as possible -- we have expanded it to a DLI Facebook Group. This is a MEMBERS ONLY forum.

SEFA Annual Meeting Set for August 14 at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA!
IT IS OFFICIAL! SEFA IS RETURNING TO FACE-TO-FACE MEETINGS AND HAS SCHEDULED ITS ANNUAL MEETING FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 14TH AT CALLAWAY RESORT AND GARDENS, IN PINE MOUNTAIN, GA. THE ANNUAL MEETING WILL BEGIN AT 8:30 AM, AND WILL BE DIRECTLY FOLLOWED BY THE SEFA BOARD MEETING .
The annual meeting will feature the installation of new Board Members and the passing of the Gavel from Rhonda Eysel to a new SEFA President. The Board meeting will focus on Membership, Education, SDLS Convention & Exhibit planning, Member Communications, and other vital topics. The Board will also host a group dinner on Saturday Night, and there will be optional group activities available including Golf on Friday afternoon.
“We are very excited to finally be able to meet in person again,” offered Rhonda Eysel, SEFA President, “and I think it will be a great opportunity for people to reconnect. I know I have missed the camaraderie of the Board and the membership getting together. The information I learn from all the participants is tremendous. It will be nice to see old friends, and meet some of the new members I have only seen on Zoom!”
All members of the association are invited and encouraged to attend both the Annual and Board Meetings. Room rates at Callaway Resort are $189/night. The resort features one of the most beautiful Georgia Botanical Gardens. You can step into a world where butterflies alight on your shoulder. Where birds of prey steal your gaze. And the stress of your daily routine melts into a sea of vibrant azaleas. Where you stumble upon charming stone chapels. And listen to the chirps of woodland birds as you stroll past fragrant blossoms and pine trees. Our Georgia botanical gardens brims as much with history as it does with flora and fauna, inviting you to explore, learn, and take in both a rich past and the wonders of nature at your own pace.
If you are interested in attending the meeting, golf, and/or dinner, please contact Peter Blake at the SEFA Office: 617-791-0128 or firstname.lastname@example.org for hotel reservation information.
