2013 Annual Meeting Introduction

31st Annual Meeting Washington DC, May 23 - May 26, 2013

The next Annual Meeting will be in one of the most exciting, historic locations in the United States, Washington, DC.  Let’s all use this opportunity to encourage every Gaither you know, from all four-corners of the country and beyond, to join us.

We will be staying in historic Alexandria, locally known as 'Old Town', which is just a short 15-minutes from the nation's capital.  The host hotel, Embassy Suites Alexandria - Old Town, is next to fabulous King Street and the Metro subway station.

Your Annual Meeting Committee has worked hard to create new, exciting programs to help in your genealogy endeavors.  There are new social options for visiting cousins, meeting new ones, and sharing Gaither stories and information!  During the three days there will be opportunities to attend professional educational sessions and informal round-table discussions.
