The December holiday gathering of the West Virginia Society of Association Executives was a full evening for all our attendees.  Thanks to our hosts at the Holiday Inn & Suites Charleston West, Hope Carroll, Don Meador and Joyce Dery, for providing an outstanding array of heavy hors d’oeuvres to accompany the most delightful beverages!

One highlight of the evening was the year-long-delayed presentation of the President’s Plaque by current President Pat McDonald to Immediate Past President Jonathan Adler.

The other highlight of the evening was the donation by WVSAE members of supplies needed by the YWCA of Charleston Sojourner’s Shelter for Homeless Women and Families.

Our folks brought pillows, cold cereals, coffee, trash bags, laundry powder and more for the 75-bed shelter in downtown Charleston.  Shelter Director Margaret Taylor shared the program’s offerings and successes with those present.
