On Nov. 17, 2010, Past president Donna Anderson hosted the annual Past President’s Luncheon at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. All association past presidents were invited to attend the event in appreciation of their generous contributions of time and effort. This year, 20 past presidents were able to attend.
As guests arrived, attendees mingled in the private reception area. When everyone was seated, Anderson gave a heartfelt welcome and recognized those who have helped to shape our association and the industry.
After the welcome, the past presidents reacquainted themselves, reminisced and enjoyed one another’s company. At the conclusion of the reception, attendees posed for a group picture, said their goodbyes and made plans to reconnect at next year’s event.
The Past President’s Luncheon has become an annual event organized by the association Member Services Department to honor our former leaders’ service and commitment to the association and its members
