This year’s conference will feature workshops and informative general sessions which will prepare attendees for leadership roles in the association, along with several new workshops which have been added. Each local is encouraged to bring as many members as possible.

In the event severe weather is predicted for any portion of the state at the time of the conference, it is the responsibility of local presidents and vice presidents to contact AEA headquarters to ascertain whether or not the meeting will still take place and for further instructions. We look forward to seeing you in Mobile as we prepare to provide effective association leadership during the upcoming year.
