GAMES Annual Meeting in Jekyll Island a big success!

From Tyler Riddle, GAMES President

For those of you that attended this years annual GAMES meeting in lovely Jekyll Island (lovely when the wind wasn’t blowing and the ghosts of antebellum GA weren't haunting our hotel rooms)... You no doubt are getting back to work and reflecting on what I feel was one of our more successful and inspiring meetings in recent memory.

While overall attendance was down, I thought that our speakers and education sessions were some of the best and most helpful we've had in a while. These great sessions coupled with the support from our outstanding associate members made for a very intimate meeting that led itself to a lot of exploration of ideas among members and some truly memorable networking time.

I want to thank all of our attendees, our associate members, and our speakers for their commitment to GAMES and our industry. I would also like to offer my most sincere thanks to Joe Gessner of Drive for his service to GAMES and to Christa Forrester of Airgas for coming on to serve YOU as an associate board member.

I leave you all with this quote which serves as the unofficial mantra of GAMES: 

"Every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged. No man has a moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere." - President T. Roosevelt, 1908
