WIFLE Announces ATLANTA as the New Location
 for the Eleventh Annual Leadership Training!

Same Time – Different City

June 21 to June 24, 2010

WIFLE Foundation has secured a hotel in Atlanta and is finalizing the contract.  We are fortunate to have secured this downtown property to host our entire attendee list.  It is guaranteed everyone will be in the same hotel with all meeting space and exhibit space conveniently in one location.

We are arranging for the orderly transfer of hotel reservations to the new host hotel.  WIFLE has secured the “group rate” of $119.00 for all WIFLE attendees.  This is below Atlanta per diem rate but the same as the Nashville rate.

The hotel announcement will be posted on the web site on Friday, May 7.  We are offering the same agenda as previously announced including the special training sessions. (there may be a few minor revisions).

New Atlanta evening events will be posted as we determine the exact information.  Those who paid for the event ($38.50) at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville will receive a reimbursement.  Please allow one week to process that.

The charity Julie Y. Cross Golf Event will go on as planned.  The new course will be announced soon.  The same rate to participate in the tournament applies ($100.00 for golf fee, cart, and lunch).

And, as previously stated, thank you for your continued support and understanding.  Please stay tuned to the WIFLE web site for more details. www.WIFLE.org

The Gaylord Opryland Hotel, Nashville, Tennessee, cannot accommodate our training event due to the state of emergency and widespread flooding. The WIFLE Foundation is working to secure another hotel for the same dates and will advise all registrants when that has been accomplished. The location may not be Nashville, but possibly in the same region. All registrants will be accommodated. We hope to have this situation handled and everyone notified of the new location in the next several days. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

Important Update On Nashville Flooding
The City of Nashville declared a "State of Emergency" because of the historic flooding in the area.  This means the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee, is currently closed. WIFLE is monitoring the situation and is in touch with the hotel. We will update the website as information is made available. 

For those individuals already registered for the Conference, you will receive email updates directly concerning the status of the Annual WIFLE Leadership Training Conference.  For all others, please check the website to keep apprised of changes to the Training Conference.

Thank you for your understanding of this unfortunate situation.

          You are invited to the WIFLE Eleventh Annual Leadership Training Conference taking place at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, June 21-24, 2010.  The hotel is rich with Nashville history and boasts large, efficient meeting rooms.  Because of the hotel's size, all conference attendees should easily be accommodated.  But please reserve your room early because WIFLE rooms do sell out quickly.  

          We will again offer pre-conference activities including the Annual Golf Tournament and pre-conference training.  Check the conference webpage for details.  Additional conference information will be posted online as it becomes available - check back often!


          See You in Nashville!

Nashville was founded in 1779, and was originally called Fort Nashborough after the American Revolutionary War hero Francis Nash. Nashville quickly grew because of its prime location, accessibility as a river port, and its later status as a major railroad center. In 1806, Nashville was incorporated as a city and became the county seat of Davidson County, Tennessee. In 1843, the city was named the permanent capital of the state of Tennessee.

By 1860 Nashville was a very prosperous city. The city's significance as a shipping port made it a desirable prize as a means of controlling important river and railroad transportation routes. The post-Civil War years of the late 19th century brought a newfound prosperity to Nashville. These healthy economic times left the city with a legacy of grand classical-style buildings, which can still be seen around the downtown area.

It was the advent of the Grand Ole Opry in 1925 combined with an already thriving publishing industry that positioned it to become "Music City USA." Since the 1970s, the city has experienced tremendous growth, particularly during the economic boom of the 1990s when urban renewal became a priority with construction or renovation of several city landmarks, including the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Nashville Public Library downtown, the Sommet Center, and LP Field. Today the city along the Cumberland River is a crossroads of American culture, and one of the fastest-growing areas of the Upper South.
