BIG NEWS...Let's Make 2023 Magical

Dear Multiples of America Members,

Our Board of Directors has been trying to “Dream BIG” this term, and while we recognize that this announcement will be welcomed by some and questioned by others; it’s a decision made following hours of research, reflection, and discussion about the organization, its mission, and how to continue to build connections and capacity.

So here’s the news many have been waiting for…

The board of directors has voted to hold the 2023 annual convention as an in-person, 3-day experience, July 27-29. The event is sure to be full of magic, learning, networking, fun, and, of course, our organizational business!

We’ve found a site that’s “practically perfect in every way.” A hotel that is just opening its doors this month, that delivers magic at every turn, that includes a free, hot breakfast and hot, dinnertime kickback each day, and that sits just moments away from one of the happiest places on earth.

If you guessed we’re gathering in Orlando, FL, you’re right! The convention site is the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando – Disney Springs Area, an official Walt Disney World hotel, which means a stay includes early theme park entry with a park ticket. Our convention rate is $159 per night for king or double queen rooms (no added resort fee). And for those who want some more visiting or exploring, you can check in with that same rate three days prior and/or three days after the convention.

Convention registration fees will be less than the 2019 convention and include workshops, a keynote, MoMs Mall shopping, a luncheon, closing celebration, business meetings, and more.

As noted earlier, the board made this decision after several months of research and discussion. We’ll be sharing information about our decision-making process in the coming weeks. For now, we wanted to share this news, so you could get the dates on your calendar and start making plans to join us…and bring your family, your best friends, your next-door neighbor (perhaps not your next-door neighbor, but just know we’re planning a family-friendly experience).

Just to recap: Our 2023 annual meeting will be an in-person, 3-day convention, July 27-29, at the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando – Disney Springs Area in Orlando, FL (with the first day being an optional day primarily reserved for sightseeing and networking).

As Mary Poppins says, “we’re on the brink of adventure,” but we’ve still got a lot of planning to do: creating a theme, pulling together daily schedules, looking for sponsors, and lots more “bibbidi bobbidi boo”. So stay on the lookout for more specifics in the coming weeks and in the meantime, “may the force be with you.”

See you in Orlando,

Mary Adcock, President
