FWD President's Award

Bryan Forbes Receives Honors

  posted on Mar 21, 2016

Congratulations to Bryan Forbes for receiving the Far Western District "President's Award" at the SCE/SCW Divisional Convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada this past weekend. In his new position as the District Events Chairman, Bryan revised the contracting method of our District conventions by establishing a 10 year look ahead venue cycle that rotates between Northern and Southern California as well as Arizona. By having the convention locations locked in years ahead, attendees can better plan for their travel needs, and most importanly, the local host chapters are relieved from having to search out suitable convention and hotel venues and to negotiate the highly detailed contract terms on an annual basis with these entities. Bryan also led the effort to revise & update the financial budgeting and reporting methods with a host of new electronic forms for the use of the host chapters. These new tools will provide for improved tracking of convention revenues and costs. This visibility will help ensure that our registration fees are being utilized in the most effective manner possible. We are proud to have Bryan as one of our members and we thank him for making the Gaslight Chorus one of the most distinguished chapters in the Far Western District of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
