COLUMBUS 2020 NEWS!!
Here's our Tournament Logo! The Columbus NABC is March 19-29, 2020.
A brief update: We begin ordering tournament shirts this month. The ACBL Team will meet in Columbus at the end of January to review the site, hotels, restaurants, and logistics. We'll publish updates every month or two here. All Tournament committee activities are moving forward. We will be asking each Unit Later in 2019 to provide volunteers for the NABC (Prizes, Registration, Information, etc.) Be sure to give your time to help make this a memorable NABC - one people will want to come back to!

The District 11 Board of Directors voted unanimously to end the publication of the Midwest monitor effective July 1, 2018. The District lowers costs by several thousand dollars, costs it passed on to the Units. We encourage Unit Representatives to send human interest news for posting to the Distirct 11 website. We encourage all District members to use their Unit and District websites to find out what's new, and keep abreast of special events of interest.

District 11 ACBL Director Report - AJ Stephani: Summer 2018 Atlanta, GA email@example.com
Atlanta NABC Meetings Hi All! Many apologies for such a long delay from my last newsletter – to be honest, the Atlanta ACBL Board of Directors (BOD) meetings were something of a dud for developments that affect our grass roots members. We had our usual slate of motions, with 3 full days of Committee and full Board meetings, and an additional day-long retreat of sorts with lots of interesting guest speakers (including our own Steve Moese!). However, most of the motions were hardly earth-shattering, and I’m hopeful that the BOD will move away from the administrative minutiae in coming years. I’ve been waiting for some more juicy tidbits to tell you about, but we’ve been in something of a holding pattern since last spring. I want to keep these newsletters focused on decisions that matter most to our players while maintaining a reasonable length. I also want to balance the informational content (what did the Board decide?) with opinion (why did I vote a certain way?).
