This has been a long week! After picking the design for the banner, Becca Haber and I spend two long hard afternoons working on it. Paint will permanently be under our finger nails forever. Not only did we paint but we started working on the opening video. I hope it gets a few laughs.
I've called so many people and asked them to sign up. People don't realize how soon the deadline is but it's today! Due to Passover being right before the convention, we need to let the caterers know how much people well be so they can plan before pesach. Sorry it has to be closed so soon but it is what it is. Everyone planning on going should be signed up.
I'm going to koach kinnus later today and can't wait to see so regional board members. I haven't seen them since last Sunday. The regional president, Jacob Adam Wasserman, divisional sato, Eric Uffer, David Grodenchik and I are all cramming into the regional sa/to, josh uffers's Honda to drive up to koach kinnus. It will be and intersting ride. Wish me luck

Hey METNY! How's it hangin'?
Only 35 days left until Regional Convention! How crazy is that? You know what that means, only one more week to sign up for the best weekend of your life! This Sunday, my fellow co-chairs (Jamie and Murphy) and I spent the day in the city and brainstormed our tushies off. Before our meeting, we headed to Times Square for some inspiration and lunch. Once we got to the METNY office, (which I've never been to; it's pretty sweet) we got right down to business. We spent a total of 4 hours planning, laughing, and researching to make METNY's Regional Game Show the best convention ever! It's going to be a weekend like you've never seen before! With so many amazing programs and choices, there will never be a dull moment. We're trying really hard to get GSN on board and broadcast it on live TV. No luck yet, but well keep trying. Tuesday I had dinner with Murphy, Jamie, and your fabulous president Jacob. I drove a total of 45 minutes for salad. It was a pretty successful adventure, I'd say. Anyway, I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Get super psyched and DONT FORGET TO SIGN UP! If you're reading this, it means you're already on the METNY website, so what are ya waiting for?
Peace out METNY,
Your Regional Convention Co-chair Becca Haber
here is nothing like a meeting in New York! This week, the METNY Regional Board and implementation committee had a meeting about the future developments of the region. I had a chance to listen in on the meeting and there are some neat changes headed our way! As for Regional Convention, planning has been a breeze. Jamie, Becca and I have a very entertaining group chat where we discuss ideas for the event! Kudos to the two girls for designing the banner in such a short amount of time! Me, I just stick with the décor and programming. Overall, there is a great team planning the event for you guys and I am so excited to see the looks on your faces when you walk into the ballroom. I guarantee you that you won’t know if you are in a hotel or a studio. (hint hint) Overall, meeting at the Metny office is so much fun, especially when we squeeze in a quick Central Park ice skating session beforehand! Remember that RC registration is OPEN!!!!! Please sign up ASAP! See you guys at Chazak Kinnus!

This week got really busy, really quickly. First of all, I’m excited to see a bunch of you at Kiryah Kinnus this weekend. Second of all, a lot of awesome stuff has been happening with RC planning this week. One of your lovely cochairs, Becca Haber, and I began creating the icebreaker of the century. Your favorite SA/TO, the great Joshua Chaim Uffer, also began making the SA/TO program of the century. Needless to say, this will be the RC of the century. We’ve been working hard already making calls to all of you, so if you haven’t yet received a call, expect one soon. So please pick up when we call because we love talking to you and voicemails get really boring, really quickly.
With a board meeting coming up Sunday, we’re gonna have a ton of updates coming your way in next week’s blog post, so be sure to stay tuned and SIGN UP FOR REGIONAL CONVENTION 2014!
Starting this Monday, we’re going to be starting something called #METNYMonday on Twitter and Facebook. So tweet or post with the hashtag, #METNYMonday, to spread METNY awareness and excitement. Tag @METNYUSY on Twitter and you might just get a shout out, reply, retweet, or favorite. I gotta go pack but I’m pumped for RC and super excited for #METNYMonday! See ya at Kiryah, Koach, and Chazak Kinnusim.
