FAQ: Annual Meeting versus Winter Party?

Occasionally, we hear the same question from several people. Our new blog is helping us to answer FAQs when they come up. The latest question we’ve been hearing is:

I want to skip the Annual Meeting and just come to the Winter Party. What time does the Winter Party begin?

Good news! They are happening simultaneously, so you don’t have to worry about timing.

We also have noticed over the last couple years that our Annual Meeting was…well, a little dry. So, this year we are trying a new strategy. We are interweaving elements of the Annual Meeting into our Winter Party. We are hoping that it will liven things up while keeping all of our members and friends informed. If you aren’t looking closely, you won’t even know that the meeting is happening all around you. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Mocktails (fun, non-alcoholic drinks)

  • An entertaining and informative multimedia presentation with pictures, video, and info about the ACL

  • Dinner (Delicious and hearty soup provided by Live Well, Eat Smart caterers)

  • Mingle with current board members, board candidates, and ACL staff

  • Talk with friends

  • Listen to music

  • If you are an ACL member, you will be handed a ballet and info sheet when you enter the door.

  • Learn about board candidates by watching short videos mixed into our multimedia presentation on the “big screen.”

  • After dinner, stay to sing, listen, or sing-along from your chair to our very own karaoke party. If you know a song you want to sing right now, email it to Caitlin, so she can have it cued up for you.

Let us know if you have any other questions. We’ll see you at the party!
