2007 AMHA Convention Relocated To Atlanta




Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina, the AMHA Annual Convention scheduled for
New Orleans in February of 2007 has been forced to move. The Hyatt Regency New Orleans had previously expected to re-open in January of 2007 and it was AMHA’s hope to be able to support the many wonderful people torn apart by this horrible storm. Unfortunately, reconstruction efforts are running behind schedule and Hyatt has informed AMHA that the convention must relocate. Sadly, the alternate location of San Antonio did not have adequate space during that time.

 

AMHA is very pleased to announce the Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia has been able to accommodate its needs for February 2007. Many of you may remember this as the site of the very successful AMHA Atlanta 2000 convention. The Atlanta area offers many great opportunities including the new Georgia Aquarium, CNN, Stone Mountain Park and a wonderful Morgan community.

 

Barb Goda and C. A. (Tony) Lee, III will be the co-chairs for the 2007 event.  Please feel free to contact them with comments or suggestions.  Barb can be reached at godabarb@aol.com or Tony at tony@morganhorse.com.

 

Everyone is invited to join us for AMHA Atlanta 2007 from February 14-17, 2007. Reservation and information will be available soon. For those of you interested, you can check out the hotel at www.renaissancewaverly.com.
