2011 National Conference

ASHE 2011 Conference

The ASHE Central Florida Section and the Southeast Region hosted the 2011 National Conference from June 22 – 26, 2011 in Orlando, Florida. Jay Guertin, President, John Derr, Charter President, Susie Mason, Section Treasurer and Yung Koprowski, 3rd Year Director and Membership Chair attended as our Section representatives. In Yung’s own words of her first experience in Orlando: “My first impression was the four-lane divided, tolled highway with manicured lawn median and shoulders, flanked by lagoons with an occasional alligator. It couldn’t have been any more different from our own Phoenix freeways.”

Two nights of social mixers and relaxing by the poolside led up to the main conference day. Additional events included a Luau dinner, golfing, Disney adventures and an outing to the Kennedy Space Station to name a few. The conference concluded with an awards banquet where John Derr and Yung Koprowski were recognized as 2011 ASHE National Member of Year and 2011 ASHE National Young Member of the Year respectively. ASHE Phoenix Sonoran Section was also recognized with the 2011 ASHE National Hart Award in recognition of the largest percentage growth in local section membership across all of ASHE.

Next years “Life is a Highway 2012 ASHE National Conference” will be hosted by the ASHE Southwest Penn Section at the beautiful Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania on June 7-10, 2012. More information can be found at We highly encourage attending next years conference for the networking and overall general experience. It’s also great fun for the entire family. We look forward to seeing you there!
