ANNUAL CONVENTION - 08/12/2020 - 08/15/2020




Imperial Sirs, Illustrious Sirs, Nobles and Ladies,

I bring you warm Fraternal Greetings on behalf of Kosair Shriners, the host of the Annual Southeastern Shrine Association for 2020.

Once again, our Convention Headquarters will be the Music Road Resort.  This property has everything our Association needs to conduct an outstanding convention including two neighboring hotels, a convention center with meeting and ballrooms, two guest only Water Parks with Lazy Rivers, Slides and much more.  Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg offer outstanding opportunities for your family to enjoy, including the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, restaurants, theme parks, shopping and the list goes on.  Be sure to visit this website to learn more:

There are two easy ways you can reserve at Music Road Resort:

1. Call 1-855-790-4646 and mention the Group Booking ID “9570” to our reservation agent.  Please note, this option is best if you’re interested in booking additional days, whether before or after the blocked group dates, or if you would like to reserve multiple rooms at the same time.

2. Make a reservation online by clicking the following link, which will take you directly to your group block in our reservation system:

Also the forms below are needed to ensure we have a successful convention:

Registration Form:  Please note that the Registration Fee is only $12 per NOBLE. Ladies are not required to pay a registration fee for 2020. However, if your lady would like to receive a lanyard, identification badge and souvenir program, a $5 registration fee is required. We ask that you make copies of this registration form and distribute them to your Divan and Nobility in order that all are afforded the opportunity to register and attend the annual convention. 

Schedule of Events:  Some Unit Association events are to be announced as we coordinate with the Associations in preparation for the convention.  We are also working on Parade details for that Saturday morning.  Additional information will be posted on the S.E.S.A. website as it is made available. 

S.E.S.A. Officer Nominating Procedure:  The office of Fifth Vice Presidents of the Association will be open for nominations at the 2020 business meeting and any other office that may become vacant. 

Souvenir Program Advertising Information:  Every year the Association publishes a souvenir program that is complimentary to attendees as a memento of the convention.  Please make copies of the contract and encourage your Divan, Clubs, Units and individual Nobles to support the S.E.S.A. by placing an ad or becoming a booster.  The ads offset the cost of the publication and support the convention activities. 

Please ask your Temple webmaster post a link from your Temple website to the S.E.S.A. website:

In closing, it is our desire that all member Temples of the Association will plan to attend, participate and enjoy the Annual Convention. We hope that you will promote this opportunity for fun and fellowship within your respective Temples. Many of our Nobility have not experienced an Association Convention and we believe that Pigeon Forge, TN affords a great opportunity for new Nobles to bring their families to fellowship and enjoy the camaraderie that our beloved Shrine Fraternity offers.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at:  I hope to greet you and your Nobility in August!  Thank you for supporting YOUR ASSOCIATION.

Yours In The Faith,
B. Shawn Warren, P.P.
President and Director General of the Southeastern Shrine Association 2020
