NWIM Ex-Comm Meeting

260 Regency Parkway Drive. DIRECTIONS: We are in the Regency Professional Plaza, Suite 200, 2nd floor. From the north, take Regency Parkway south.  You will pass Whole Foods, the Regency Shopping Center, Fleming's Steakhouse and the Enterprise Bank building.  Just south of the Enterprise Bank building is a driveway on the right which will take you directly into the parking lot.  From the south, take Pacific to Regency Parkway, then turn right on Regency Parkway and get in the left lane.  Go past the first stoplight and there is a left turn lane at the next intersection.  US Bank will be on your left.  Turn left onto Regency Parkway Drive and then immediately right and follow Regency Parkway Drive to the building.  (Note: some GPS maps have the building on the wrong side of Regency Parkway, so use these directions.) You should enter using the outside door on the north side of the building. If you come in the south side of the building just follow the hallway through the building until you get to the elevator/north staircase.  Office suite 200 is on the second floor. If you arrive late and the office suite door is locked, phone someone in Ex-comm to be let in.  For more information, contact Kirk Johnson, 712-323-1454, cell phone 402-659-4154, captnkirko@cox.net.
