Registration begins for 80th SMA at Walt Disney World

Registration is now underway for the 80th annual Southeastern Meeting Association (SMA) convention at the Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., from June 10-15.

Co-hosted by Earl D. Karper Sr. of Division 35 and Michael L. Tanner of Division 769, the 2007 SMA promises to be an exciting, relaxing and fun event for the entire family. The Co-Chairmen and the SMA arrangements committee have put together fun events such as a Polynesian luau, a tour of the Walt Disney Railroad steam trains at the Magic Kingdom, a golf tournament on a PGA graded course, a motorcycle ride and many other exciting possibilities.

Members can register and pay online through the SMA's all-inclusive website,

Also this year, the SMA is offering a "register early for less" option that will not only save members money, but will help the SMA arrangements committee get a better head count in advance.

The SMA's reduced room rates are $129 per night (for rooms that are normally upwards of $179 weekdays to $199 weekends). Please call (407) 939-1020 to make hotel reservations - and when making reservations, it is extremely important to make sure you announce that you are part of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen's SMA group in order to obtain the discounted room rates.
