Third day of the 2022 ACA Annual Business Conference has been set

The ABC was unable to get through all of the business that needed to be conducted this year and instead of adding another day to the weekend it was decided to find a day later this summer to join together to conduct business.

A poll was sent out to delegates with some possible dates and was to be returned by June 22.

You can expect further details in the upcoming Traveler newsletter, but, for now, delegates should add July 23rd to their calendars starting at 9:00 AM Eastern time and running for 7 or 8 hours. Be on the lookout for The Traveler and in your email for additional information.
