A Message from the President…
August 25, 2008
Dear Fellow Cemeterians,
I am honored to serve as President of the Association of Alabama Cemeteries. I am excited about the upcoming year and working with the newly appointed Officers and Board of Directors.
I hope everyone enjoyed the 2008 Tri-State Convention in Bilioxi, Mississippi. As always, it was great to make new friends and renew old friendships. My family and I had a great time! My husband even did his part in boasting the cash flow there at the Beau Rivage Casino and I feel sure the casino will be inviting us back soon.
Special thanks to our sponsors for their presence and support; without them we could not have the success we have. We had wonderful speakers again as well. Please mark your calendar for next year’s Tri-State Convention at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans hosted by the Louisiana Association.
Membership is always on the front burner of any association so I challenge you as members to reach out and make sure your surrounding funeral homes and cemeteries are invited to become a member or let the membership Committee know. There is strength in numbers.
Legislative challenges will lay before us again most likely this year. The Legislative Committee will keep a watchful eye and make recommendation as needed. Any updates or notices will be post to the web site (www.alabamacemeteries.org).
Please review your Board of Directors and call upon them as needed.
If you have any comments or suggestions, please call me at 256-708-3483 or e-mail at email@example.com. Again thank you for your support and confidence.
