A meme recently flooded the internet that said, “the most worthless purchase of 2019 was a 2020 planner.” I feel like more of us can relate to this than not. I wouldn’t go straight to using the word “worthless,” but I can say thank goodness for pencils!
The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt across all industries and situations. AATC has continued to be committed to the safety of our members. We promise to be as understanding and accommodating as possible in all upcoming events and education courses. We will continue to keep you up-to-date with any future changes that may take place.
The 2020 AATC Diva’s Cup was canceled, and we are looking forward to coming together again on Friday, May 7th, 2021.
The Spring Fling Golf Tournament presented by SRT was originally moved from April 1st to June 24th before making its final move to Tuesday, October 6th. This change results in AATC only having one golf tournament in 2020. All original sponsors and team registrations are automatically transferred to the rescheduled date. We are excited to see everyone at Texas Star Golf Club in October!
The UGM Charity Bowling Tournament was originally moved from March to July. Still, AATC has recently made the difficult decision to cancel this event for 2020. All lane sponsors will have the option to have their sponsorship dollars donated to UGM on their behalf or move their paid funds and lane reservation(s) to the 2021 event.
While we don’t get to bowl together, we do get to bid together! The silent auction, which takes place at the bowling event each year, is still happening! This will be a virtual event that you won’t want to miss participating in! Stay tuned for event dates and details. Don’t forget, 100% of the funds from the silent auction go directly to Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County!
Last but not least, the AATC Lone Star Awards Leadership Celebration has also landed a new date and a new venue. This is not a COVID-related change but is the result of an exciting and beneficial change recently voted into place by the AATC Board of Directors. Starting in 2021, the AATC program year will match its fiscal year, along with the calendar year.
This also puts AATC’s program year in line with that of AAGD, TAA, and NAA. The new event date for our Lone Star Awards is Friday, January 29th, 2021, at The Speedway Club at Texas Motor Speedway.
