November 2013 Fall Samboree
State Committee Meeting
Letter to Chapter Presidents
October 3, 2013

To All Good Sams of Florida Chapter Presidents:

This letter is to inform you there will be a State Committee Meeting on Saturday,
November 23rd, 2013 at 9:30 AM at SOUTHERN PALMS RV RESORT, Eustis, Florida  in
connection with our Fall Samboree. Breakfast will be provided for all chapter
presidents or representatives and spouses beginning at 8:00 AM in the Pines Hall.

I am sending this letter, and the agenda to those that have an email address with
us.  For those who don’t, I will be sending a packet by regular mail.  The minutes
from the meeting in Okeechobee are available on the web page if you would  like to
print a copy to bring to the meeting.   Please visit the web page for many changes
have been made in the past year.   www.goodsams-florida.org

All Chapter Presidents are members of the State Committee and should make  
every effort to attend the Committee Meeting or send a representative from your  
chapter.  If you are unable to` attend the Committee Meeting and you send a
representative in your place, remember to send a letter signed by you as President
identifying that individual as your appointed representative.  Good Sams of Florida,
Inc. SOPs Section (2) and (3) states all chapter presidents, or their designated
representative shall make up the State Committee and attend State Committee
meetings each year.

With all of our suppliers cutting back on door prizes and donations, we will accept
help from the chapters in the way of giving door prizes.  I would like to thank
everyone for all the help in volunteering and donating door prizes in the past.

I urge you to please read and familiarize yourself with the new Constitution and By–
laws of Good Sam effective January 1, 2013.  These By-Laws are on the web page
along with Florida Good Sams’ SOPs at www.goodsams-florida.org under the state
committee meeting tab. If your chapter elects to have SOPs and you have not yet
sent them in please do so this month as we need to get them to the Regional
Directors for approval in November.  Per the latest e-mail from Ed James, Regional
Director, your chapter may elect to follow the Good Sams of Florida SOPs in lieu of
developing your own. You will need to send me a letter signed by you as president
stating this desire.

Thank you,

Joe & Debbie Weston
Florida Good Sam State Director
