President’s Letter

by Michelle Baxter

Hello fellow SAABers!

We are proud to announce next year’s convention will be returning to the beautiful Pacific Northwest! Every ten years, the PNW Saab Club hosts a convention in their region. This year, the convention will be held within driving distance to some of the best kept secrets the PNW has to offer. We, as a club, couldn’t choose just one area in that region, so we chose to locate the convention close to them all!

If you have ever had the opportunity to attend a convention in the area, then you know what a treat it is to be in that part of the country. If you haven’t had a chance to attend one, well here’s your opportunity. Please go to saabclub.com for all of the details. Registration is open now!

If you can’t make the national convention, don’t fret. We have been working hard behind the scenes to keep the Saab Spirit alive from coast to coast. How, you might wonder?

You guys heard my call and we now have several Saab Ambassadors! Look for them at your next meets all over the country, and in your social media communities! These guys on the marketing team have been hard at work making things happen, gathering information about clubs and events across the US, and are now getting ready to share them with the community at large!

If you want to see more Saabs at your next club event, social or meetup please reach out to info@saabclub.com to let us know what’s going on.

As always,

Keep on SAABin’!

Shelly Baxter
