“Save the date and plan to attend the 46th Annual Convention”

I hope you will consider attending CASBA’s Annual Convention at the Renaissance World Golf Village Resort in St. Augustine, Florida on February 15-17, 2015.

In addition to warm weather, industry networking and great golf, we will be honoring Mr. Tom Lugar, Chairman of T.L. Green Co. on Sunday night, February 15.

Tom became a member and Treasurer of the Southern Cookie Manufacturers’ Association in the late 1950’s. This organization later became the Cookie and Snack Bakers’ Association. For almost 60 years, Tom spent his career in our industry leading the T.L. Green Co., which was founded by his grandfather over 110 years ago. T.L. Green merged with Reading Bakery Systems in 2001.

Former Senator Richard Lugar, (R) Indiana, who is Tom’s brother, will be our keynote speaker on Monday morning.   He will provide insight into the changing political climate in Washington as well as his global perspective on world affairs.

Please save the date and plan to attend the 46th Annual Convention.
