Our first meeting of 2015 was a success! We spent the week in New Orleans at the JW with 325 of our awesome members, spouses, and guests.
We wanted to have another "local experience" like we did in Boston, so we had some fun up our sleeves for Thursday night.
I was really nervous about the weather because it rained as soon as we arrived Monday and pretty much didn't quit. Once Thursday afternoon rolled around I was about to go outside and do an anti-rain dance. But luckily, the skies cleared just in time for us to parade 200 people out of the JW, across Canal street (police escorts shut down the four lane road), and down Bourbon Street through the French Quarter. Our final destination was Bourbon Vieux, a fantastic event venue where we hosted a reception with cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres complete with a wrap-around balcony overlooking Bourbon. It was fabulous to say the least!
Here are some photos from the week!

And here was one of our marketing pieces before the event. Just to get everyone excited for NOLA!
I'll do another NOLA post soon because Tim flew down and we stayed a few extras days for fun!
On another note.. today is my birthday! Yay for April 23 babies! Does 27 still count as mid-twenties? I sure hope so!
Have a great day!
