Tennessee Pilot clubs to hold 80th annual convention

Posted

The Tennessee District of Pilot International will hold its 80th annual convention at the Music Road Hotel and Convention Center in Pigeon Forge on April 21-23. Pilot International was founded in Macon, Georgia, in 1921 as a volunteer service organization for business and professional women. Since then, the Pilot Internatonal has expanded to include men and women in all walks of life around the globe.

The historic inspiration for the name was the riverboat pilot who would steer a true course through calm or troubled waters, thus, for almost 100 years, Pilots have served under the motto “True Course Ever.” Today’s Pilots find their “true course” through our charge to do more, care more and be more every day. Our mission is to influence positive change in communities throughout the world by coming together in friendship and giving people an outlet for service. We focus on preparing youth and young adults for service; encouraging brain safety and health; and by supporting those who care for others.

The Pilot Club of Cleveland and the Pilot Club of Oak Ridge will host this Convention. The Tennessee District is comprised of 220 volunteer members in nine clubs located across the state. The weekend will include the election of officers and their installation, other business of the District, guest speakers, leadership training, as well as fun and fellowship.

If you are interested in more information on Pilot International and how you can help make a difference in your community, contact Tennessee District Governor and member of the Pilot Club of Oak Ridge, Sherry Bath at 865-482-6171.
