AILA Members:

I trust that everyone is doing what is necessary to stay safe and healthy. These are indeed “interesting times.” *

We are now turning our attention to our next Association meeting.

Our next AILA meeting will be in Birmingham on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at the Crescent Building, 2311 Highland Avenue South, Birmingham, AL 35205. We will start at 10:00 AM. Lunch will be served. We plan to conclude at 1:00 PM. Depending upon the then state of our pandemic, social distancing will be observed, and/or video conferencing will be available.

This is our traditional “Committee Day” Meeting where committees will meet to plan strategy for the year and discuss other industry and association business. This year’s meeting will also include the election of Officers and Board for the Association. As we develop the agenda, more information will be forthcoming.

Please mark your calendar now to attend. I look forward to seeing you on soon.

AILA Members and Friends:

I write to advise you of several developments:

1. We have cancelled the 2020 AILA Annual Meeting in Biloxi that was set for June. Regrettably, the Coronavirus is not going to allow us to meet early in the summer. We have worked with our Event Planning team and the Beau Rivage to cancel without penalty. We are in discussions with the Beau about having our convention in Biloxi in 2023.

2. We have set Tuesday, October 13th, 2020, for our next Committee Day Meeting in Birmingham. Our current Officers and Directors will continue to serve the Association until we can hold an election at that meeting.
