33rd Annual ALAIR Conference

Lake Guntersville State Park – March 7th and 8th, 2019


Please make plans to join us at beautiful Lake Guntersville State Park in early March.

Message From The Conference Chair

ALAIR 2019 is quickly approaching. Jim Elliot said, “Wherever you are, be all there!” In our lives and work, we are constantly pulled and connected. Our to-do lists get longer, and every meeting we attend means more work. I won’t promise warmer temperatures for ALAIR Conference 2019, but I will offer a change of scenery. Join us at Lake Guntersville State Park Lodge for mountain lake views and a focused time of retreat from the daily grind. Our efforts at “Reaching New Heights” will be just as good as you help us to make it.

We are handling membership a little differently this year. You will notice that membership and conference registration are two separate forms. This year members have an option to choose institutional or individual membership, depending on what is best for your needs. Please be sure to complete both the membership and conference registration forms, and please send those electronically as soon as possible, even before payment is processed so that we can know to expect them.

I hope you’ve been thinking about what sessions you’d like to see offered at this year’s conference and what sessions you’d like to propose to present yourself. I’m excited about the potential of this conference! We’ll start with a pre-conference outdoor team building activity, we’ll have a beach barbecue for our Thursday night special event, and we’ll hopefully take time to enjoy the beautiful scenery at this mountain and lake view state park.
