The 94th ARA Convention was magical. It was everything I had wanted and more!
For the members who attended, thank you! For those who were involved in planning and executing the convention, my hats are off to you! I hope convention was as informative, fun and festive for you, as it was for me. We honored many of our members and local boards, for their service and fundraising efforts. It was heartwarming to see these members and boards receive the recognition they deserve. I am already making my plans for the 2019 ARA Convention and hope you are doing the same thing. I heard a member say yesterday, that he couldn't believe he had never attended a convention until this year. He said "I have been missing out on so much that is offered at convention." I hope you don't miss out in 2019!
