So keep your eyes open for the Winter Edition of the Moose Magazine for we may end up as the Cover Story.

Hello all,
As you have seen all over this issue, WSNIMA rocked the world at our convention by electing the first female association officers in Moose history.  We have said for years that WSNIMA is your association and I hope this shows that we meant it.  To me, this is just the start.  It won't be long and we will be installing our first woman into the Presidency and you have my word that I will follow her lead and work hard for her.  There is so much talent out there now that we should never go any direction but up, and I believe that is the path that you have put us on.  Thanks to everyone that made this possible.  We are family and we proved it.  Be on the lookout for the next issue of the Moose Magazine.  You will be proudly and pleasantly surprised.
Speaking of conventions, we are working on meeting bids for 2021 and 2022 now.  Like everything else, convention hotel prices are rising.  I will have some bids for you to consider at our Mid-Year Conference in March.  I plan to ask for a good chunk of time to explain to you what the details of each option are, and then we will let the attendees of the conference decide what we will be doing in 2021 and 2022.  If you know of an outside-the-box situation in your community that you think might work like what we did in Long Beach, please contact me.  After asking for bids from several hotels on the west side and one from Spokane, I promise you, Red Lion is going to be our most affordable option as far as convention hotels go, and Pasco is the most aggressive bidder again.  If we can find another situation like Long Beach that meets our needs while also saving you some money, we will explore it.  I promise you that our leaders know that rising prices limit your ability to attend.  We will do all we can to control your costs.
Have a great fall.  I look forward to seeing you in my travels.
John Mangiantini
