Save the date: 2018 BLET regional meetings

CLEVELAND, August 17 — The BLET National Division is pleased to announce the dates and locations of its 2018 regional meetings: June 18-22 in Monterey, California; and August 13-17 in Washington, D.C.

The Monterey regional meeting will be held at the Hyatt Regency and the Washington, D.C. regional will be held at the Capital Hilton.

As with the 2017 regional meetings, the 2018 meetings will be arranged on a Monday through Friday schedule. Travel to the meeting, registration and a welcome reception for each of the two meetings will be on Monday (June 18 for Monterey and August 13 for Washington, D.C.). Meetings, training classes and other events will be scheduled throughout the remainder of the week and will include a closing banquet on Thursday night. Travel home is on Friday for each meeting (June 22 for Monterey and August 17 for Washington, D.C.).

Per the BLET Bylaws, regional meetings are held “for the purposes of membership training, education and discussion of matters of importance to the membership.” Additionally, the meetings are structured to include options for fellowship with other members and their families, entertainment, fun and relaxation.

More specific details will be announced at a later date. Registration information will be available online at the BLET National Division’s regional meeting website (http://www.bletregionals.org). All members are encouraged to attend one or both of these regional meetings in 2018.
