AAR Special Membership Meeting- Monday, April 29, 2019

Time :11:00am

Place: Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel & Convention Center in Prattville.

Purpose: To consider a revised motion from our Planning Committee to make our Board of Directors more efficient in helping conduct the business of our Association.

The suits are both seeking class action status. If granted, the proposed allegations could then potentially cover anyone in the U.S. who has received an automatic text message from the brokerages in the last four years.
