In May, we will be gathering together to take care of IOKDS business. IOKDS Conference 2019 will be held at the historic Millennium Maxwell House Hotel. Why historic? The story goes that President Theodore Roosevelt on a stay at the hotel said of his morning coffee that it was “good to the last drop”. That famous tagline of Maxwell House coffee permeated radio and TV ads for years. Each time we gather our members together we get to make history too. We elect new leaders, we consider changes to the bylaws, and we make decisions about membership dues increases. In that regard, this gathering will be no different – after all, it is our collective responsibility to take care of business. Good stewardship of all our gifts and talents is biblical. Along the way, many other good things happen – learning, laughter, new friendships and deepened old ones – let’s call it “good to the last event”. See you there!
Christine Dawson, International President
