(ATLANTA) - The 24 Karat Club Southeastern United States held their bi-annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, February 28th, prior to the opening day of the Southeastern Jewelry Travelers Association's Atlanta Jewelry Show, at the Cobb Galleria Center in Atlanta, Georgia. At the meeting, brought to order by 24 Karat Club president Mike Fallaize, the membership discussed prospective new members, the awarding of Club scholarships and the annual black tie 24 Karat Club Banquet.

In addition to the new date, this year's Banquet will be held at a new venue - the beautiful Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. This venue is not only luxurious, but very convenient for Atlanta Jewelry Show attendees, being located less than one mile from the Cobb Galleria Center, site of the Atlanta Show.
Membership Committee chair, Keely Grice informed the Club's members of several applicants being considered for induction at the 2009 Banquet. The Club has enjoyed significant growth in its membership over the last several years and it appears the trend will continue in 2009.
