Southeastern CP Meeting in Atlanta,GA
Wed, 27 Jul 94 22:33:02 EDT

SEPTEMBER 23,24,25 1994

Several ICPS members living in the southeastern United States have requested
that an affiliate group within ICPS be formed. For several years, similar
successful groups involving the Bay Area of San Francisco and the
northeastern United States have been active and CP enthusiasts in the
southeast feel that an equivalent group in their region would be helpful to
The first meeting and organizational planning session combined for the group
will be September 23,24, and 25 1994, at the Atlanta Botanical Garden where
Ron Determann has graciously offered to host the group.

All ICPS members with concern, particularly southeastern members, are
encouraged to drop a note to either Steve Baker or Don Schnell with their
feelings on this matter and any ideas.
it is realized that the Northeastern Group has recently expanded as the
Eastern Group. However, it is the feeling of many in the southeast that
such a geographical designation, even with meetings alternated yearly
throughout the area, is too broad to encompass a meeting for all members who
may wish to attend yearly rather than in alternate years. Individuals in
border areas, such as Virginia and Tennessee, may wish to attend both area
meetings. Certainly, ALL ICPS members in the CP world are invited to the
southeastern meetings at any time where we can all enjoy good fellowship.
It is not the intent of the CP enthusiasts in the southeast to pre-empt or
otherwise cause difficulties with the Eastern Group. In fact, mutual
exchange of meetings announcements and newsletters is encouraged as well as
attendance at both annual meetings by all when possible.
