It's not too early to begin planning to attend the 2010 ACB board meeting, affiliate presidents' meeting, or legislative seminar. These meetings will again be held back to back in February of 2010. The dates are as follows: Friday, Feb. 19, board of directors meeting; Saturday, Feb. 20, first day of affiliate presidents' meeting; Sunday, Feb. 21, conclusion of affiliate presidents' meeting; Sunday, Feb. 21, first day of legislative seminar; Monday, Feb. 22, second day of legislative seminar; Tuesday, Feb. 23, final day of legislative seminar, and chance to visit Congressional offices.

The 2010 meetings will be held at the same location we used in 2009, the Holiday Inn National Airport in Arlington, Va. The room rate is $119 per night for singles and doubles, plus tax, and this rate is available from Thursday, Feb. 18-Wednesday, Feb. 24. To make reservations, call (703) 684-7200. The deadline for reservations at this rate is Jan. 19, 2010.

In order to insure that we have enough materials available, and can give the hotel accurate counts for meals, we are strongly encouraging attendees to register in advance this year. Even when there is no charge, we need to know you are coming, so we will be asking everyone to register by Feb. 10. Registration forms will be sent out later this year, but we wanted to make sure you have the information about the meetings in time to make plans to attend. If you have questions, please feel free to contact any of us in the ACB national office, either by e-mail ([email protected]), or by calling us. The phone numbers are 1-800-424-8666 and (202) 467-5081. See you in 2010!
