2018 Annual Vendor's Meeting

Thursday, December 6, 2018
4:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Rothchild's Catering & Conference Center

8807 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, Tennessee

The purpose of this meeting is to allow interaction between the Chapter’s members and our very supportive affiliates and vendors. The vendors each set up a table demonstrating their latest products and services and members will have ample opportunity to meet with them individually. There will be a cash bar during the social times and the buffet-style dinner. The most anticipated feature of this meeting---besides the opportunity to network with your colleagues---is the wildly popular drawing with items provided by our great vendors as well as the Chapter. Each guest will be provided with drawing tickets, which should be placed in bowls on each vendor’s table. After dinner, each vendor will make a brief presentation and perform a drawing for their item. Drawing for items provided by the Chapter is also performed at this time.

This year’s Featured Charity is supporting local high school FIRST Robotics teams. The mission of FIRST® is to “inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.”

The FIRST table will be giving away a nice drawing item. Drawing tickets for the FIRST drawing item will be $5 (but is not necessary) with all money raised in the drawing going to these high school teams.  I hope you will support this important STEM organization.

Registration is due by Nov 30, 2018
