President's Article for Conference

By Paul Kovalski

I am excited to invite you to our Annual SAID Conference, November 9 - 11, to be held in the "Hostess City of The South", Savannah, Georgia. When you will experience the sights and sounds, flavors and fragrances and Antebellum Southern Charm, you will agree with Travel + Leisure magazine rating this charming gem highest in "Quality of Life and Visitor Experience".

A warm and hospitable climate awaits us with something for everyone. Savannah is a great walking city with most attractions close to our meeting. For your appetite numerous excellent restaurants provide a variety of tastes including barbeque, seafood, soul food, French, Low country and Old Southern Haute Cuisine. Centuries of multi-cultural influences are not only tasted but felt and you explore the Spanish Moss and Oak Tree lined sidewalks.

History abounds for any interest. Savannah became one of the richest Antebellum era seaports as you will discover walking along the waterfront of the Savannah River. Religious tolerance is noted when you visit the magnificent Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the Temple Mickve Israel, the First African Baptist Church and other houses of worship dating back to colonial times. The Revolutionary War patriot, Nathaniel Greene is buried here. The "Father of the American Calvary", Casmir Pulaski, gave his life here fighting for independence. And Fort Pulaski, a National Park site, named in his honor saw action in the Civil War and greeted General Sherman on his infamous March to the Sea. Over 25 museums are available.

Savannah is also famous for its parks, greens, and cemeteries. Don't miss a trip to the haunting Bonaventure Cemetery, home of the "Bird Girl" statue. The gorgeous Forsyth Park Fountain is stunning and the Oaland Wildlife Center welcomes the nature lover. City Market abounds with local specialties to take home and an aesthetic experience will be found at the Jepsen Center Museum of Art. Please enjoy all the sights at your own pace, or take a carriage ride on the cobblestone streets or join an organized tour covering such themes as architecture, history, ghosts & cemeteries, and more.

Please join us this November in Savannah and find out why such movies as Forest Gump, Glory, The Longest Yard, and the haunting Midnight In the Garden Of Good & Evil were filmed here. You can also check:
