Hello SNE Chapter Members,


I have a few updates for you.  


1. SWANApalooza has been postponed.  Please look for updates from National in your e-mail or go to for updates.  I will post information as it becomes available, but National will be the most current source of information.  For the time being, I will leave the discount code information posted below so that you can use it for any new date that is proposed.  They are tracking this by code that you can you use to get a $100 discount when your register.  The flyer below has the code, so please use it when registering.
