The 2018 ACB conference and convention in St. Louis was a rousing success. The hotel staff at the Union Station was extremely helpful and friendly. We had wonderful volunteers from JW, LDS and many other sources. The host committee, chaired by Jesuita Tabor, did a great job obtaining entertainment, clergy, local exhibitors, items for registration bags, and whatever else was asked of them.
It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the convention committee: Margarine, Sally, Danielle, Rick, Michael, Rhonda and Vicky. You handle your duties independently and efficiently; you make my life so much easier. Thank you to Kim, Paula and Catalina for your assistance with telephone registrations. The Minneapolis and Alexandria staffs, as always, were extremely helpful performing many convention-related tasks.
To those of you who participated in the convention, either in person or via ACB Radio, thank you for your support and feedback.
The dates for 2019’s conference and convention are July 5th through 12th. We’ll be in Rochester, N.Y., at the Hyatt and Riverside (formerly Radisson) hotels. Hotel details and information about traveling to Rochester will be provided in my next article.
