ALA Fall Membership Meeting
October 9 & 10, 2015

The ALA will hold its annual winter membership meeting a little earlier this year…we will meet at Minnowbrook Conference Center on Blue Mt. Lake on Columbus Day Weekend. The location is beautiful and as our members know, they do a great job hosting our events. The dates are Friday and Saturday, October 9th and 10th, 2015. This meeting will round out our 25th Anniversary year. We are hoping to have some pleasant fall weather so that folks can enjoy the outdoors while they are there.

We will have our usual Friday evening reception along with our always popular live and silent auction. Following dinner we will make two special presentations to some well deserving Adirondack leaders, Fred Monroe and George Canon. They are both stepping down as Town Supervisors after almost 25 years of service to their respective communities. Additionally, we have invited Peter Walke, Assistant Secretary for the Environment to be our guest speaker on Friday nite. Peter works for Basil Seggos, Governor Cuomo's Deputy Secretary for the Environment. Peter's passions lie in the balance between necessary development and enhancing our environmental commitments. He is also active in the US Naval Reserve, we are honored to have him join us.

Saturday morning we plan to follow-up on the interesting discussions we had in May and build on that with increased member participation. We will also have our normal membership business meeting followed by lunch.

So please save those dates now and make plans to join your fellow members for a great event. The meeting reservation forms are on the website...please check back for updates. See ya in Blue Mountain Lake!
