2017 Annual Seminar - July 26-28, 2017

OUR 112th Annual Seminar is planned for July 26-28, 2017, again at the Westin Canal Place, New Orleans, LA 

Our speakers and agenda are being developed and will be highlighted again by senior leaders in industry, politics and our Federal partners. 

GOLF - Our golf outing is scheduled for the morning of Wednesday July 26th at a nearby New Orleans golf course. We'll serve coffee and donuts prior to tee off and will serve soft drinks and beer on the course during play. There is a nominal fee of $50 for golf. Put together your foursome, or just come out yourself, see you there! 

SPOUSES -  Spouses may again plan on an enjoyable outing in New Orleans. Elaine Stark is putting together another fun and informative visit for July 27th the New Orleans School of Cooking. Typically our spouses' functions, which include lunch, depart the Westin at around 10:00 am and return about 3:00 pm. 

SPONSORS - Please consider expanding or continuing your support for this critical function, through a Seminar Sponsorship. The financial support we gain from our generous sponsors is essential to maintaining the posture and credibility of our organization. This will be especially true as we look to improve upon excellent industry support provided by GICA to date.

There are four levels of sponsorship:

Platinum - $2,500 and up;  Gold - $1000 and up;  Silver - $750 and up;  Bronze up to $750

All sponsors are recognized throughout the event for their commitment to GICA.  Please respond with your level of support prior to July 20th in order to ensure inclusion on all published materials prepared in advance of the convention.
