WANADA set for Annual Meeting and Luncheon Nov. 17 at Ritz/Tysons

Everything is ready for WANADA’s Annual Membership Meeting and Luncheon this Friday, Nov. 17, at the Ritz-Carlton/ Tysons Corner. Popular Fox News anchor Bret Baier will be the luncheon speaker, offering his insights on the Washington scene and American politics. Baier joined Fox in 1998 and has reported from Iraq and Afghanistan and interviewed major figures ranging from George W. Bush and Barack Obama to the Dalai Lama.

Following a networking reception starting at 11:30 a.m., the Annual Meeting will include a state of the industry and regional automobile business report from WANADA’s chairman, Charles Stringfellow. Members will also elect WANADA’s 2018 Board of Directors. Baier’s remarks will follow and wrap up the meeting at about 1:50 p.m.

New this year is a “Fireside Chat” with Bret Baier. After his lunch presentation, Baier will remain after and conduct the chat in a room in the Ritz-Carlton with members who sign up for an extra fee of $50 to attend this exclusive session. Only 40 tickets are offered on a first come, first served basis. Fireside Chat registrations were emailed to luncheon registrants starting Nov. 1.

WANADA members and luncheon guests who do not plan to attend the “Fireside Chat” are invited to attend the post-luncheon “Happy Hour,” a great opportunity to mingle and network with other dealer members, friends and associates. The “Happy Hour” will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the salon area just outside the ballroom where the luncheon takes place.

The Annual Meeting and Luncheon is jointly sponsored by Armatus; BG Products & Services; Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell, and SunTrust. The Fireside Chat is sponsored by WellNet Healthcare. The post-luncheon “Happy Hour” is sponsored by Architects Group Practice and Buch Construction.
