Latest ATOS News
With some 440 signed up so far, we are expecting a wonderful group for what we hope will be a great convention in Atlanta. Although some of the discounts and deadlines have passed, for those of you waiting til the last minute, there is still time to join us!
Meanwhile, pack for hot weather, temps in the 82-95 region during the day, low 70's at night. The humidity can pop up a shower at anytime, so a small umbrella might be handy. And if air-conditioning in theatres and on busses can be an issue for you, a light sweater or windbreaker type jacket might come in handy.

The 2013 ATOS Annual Convention is right around the corner. Nearly 450 will be on hand, and it is not too late for you to register!
June 7th is the deadline for the JW Marriott room rate of $119. While they are sold out of “doubles,” there are king rooms available for the full run of the convention, Overture and Finale events. But that room rate ends June 7th!
Our apologies for those who experienced some difficulty with the room reservations. Working with Marriott officials, that has been rectified, so for those of you still considering the trip to Atlanta, y’all come on down.
The Overture to Chattanooga is Monday, July 1. The convention will run July 2-5 starting with those two great days at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. The Finale to South Georgia is Saturday, July 6th.
There is still time to make your plans to attend the ATOS Annual Convention in Atlanta.
