GA ITE February 2014 Monthly Meeting RESCHEDULED

Due to the pending Ice Storm, the GAITE February Meeting has been RESCHEDULED to FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2014!

The Mary Mac’s location and presentation does not change. The speakers are looking forward to informing our record crowd (126 registered!!!) about Flashing Yellow Arrows.

If you have already registered, you should have received an email with instructions on how to change your registration to Friday.  If you haven’t registered, you are more than welcome to walk up the day of the meeting ($5 late fee will be applied)

If the storm is worse than anticipated and there is wide-spread power outages (impeding our ability to communicate to you the meeting status), assume the meeting is postponed to a later date.  While we would be honored, please don’t risk your life trying to make it to an ITE event!

Thank you!  Everyone stay safe and warm!
