 A Message from the President



Welcome to 2013!  I am honored and excited to be your Southeastern Regional Relocation Council (SRRC) President. As you have read in prior communications, this year marks the SRRC's 25th anniversary - and in celebration of this milestone, we are dedicating both of our conferences to revisiting our past successes as well as looking forward to expanding this organization to be even bigger and better - not just this year, but in years to come!   


And in order to achieve the goal of expansion, our main focus for 2013 is to increase our corporate membership through the formation of the SRRC "Corporate Outreach Initiative".   To kick off this outstanding effort, the SRRC board approved FREE conference registration to be given to the first 25 corporate attendees that sign up for either the Spring or Fall conferences.  And, as a result of this initiative, I am proud to announce that our corporate attendance has already doubled for our upcoming event later this month!   Please take a few moments to read about the conference details in the article that follows - and again, please ... spread the good word about our organization and come help us celebrate 25 fantastic years of relocation history, culture, professionalism and friendship.


A big thanks to all of you who have already signed up for conference - and for those who have not...there's still time to register.  See you in Orlando!


Best regards,

Matt Canfield

SRRC President
