Manalapan, FL / May 4-7
Greetings to all:
The 2019 BSA Convention is almost upon us and will be held in Manalapan, Florida (Palm Beach) next year. To be sure the planning committee has been hard at work with agendas and activities, my hope is that it will be a lasting memory for all “our family” of distributors and manufacturers that attend. We are a family and have been for over 53 years now. Building relationships, growing friendships, and making our industry stronger.
During the convention this year I would like to ask for your generous support in the form of monetary donations to Autism Speaks. 100% of your donation will support the Autism Speaks organization and its goals.
Autism is a developmental disorder that affects individuals and families in many different ways. This I know because my family has been affected by it -- one of our grandchildren is diagnosed with autism. Because of the generous support from people who give to Autism Speaks it is a disorder that we know more about and has made significant advancements! Of course, progress doesn’t come without much needed help. This is why I am asking for donations to “Autism Speaks” to help further their mission. Today, Autism Speaks is dedicated to advancing research into causes and better treatments for autism spectrum disorders and related conditions both through direct funding and collaboration.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of people with autism and their families by means of:
Autism Speaks relentlessly pursues strategies that make significant progress toward the following outcomes over the next 10 years:

These /goals can only be achieved through work in communities nationwide, at the federal level, and globally by working with partners, governments and other organizations such as the BSA. Donations can be made through the BSA and will be directly sent to Autism Speaks.
I am pleased to add that the entire Convention Planning Committee has started the campaign with a donation of $300.00 per team. Please join us in making this a successful contribution for an Illness that affects so many families.
