BLE state legislative board chairmen hold annual meeting in July

This year the National Association of State Legislative Board Chairmen (NASLBC) will hold its annual meeting in Niagara Falls, Canada, reports NASLBC Secretary-Treasurer I. Perry Renfro.

FRA Administrator Jolene Molitoris headlines the list of guest speakers. BLE President Edward Dubroski will also address the State Legislative Chairmen, as will Vice-President Leroy Jones, the BLE's U.S. National Legislative Board Chairman. Names of other guest speakers were not available as this issue of the Newsletter went to press.

Raymond Holmes, chairman of the Texas State Legislative Board, heads up the NASLBC.

The meeting will be July 22-26 at the Sheraton Fallsview Hotel and Conference Center.

Brother Renfro reports that the conversion rate may change, but it currently translates to $132 per night (U.S.). If hotel reservations are not made by June 20, then room rates will increase to $300 per night (Canadian), which is the hotel's regular seasonal rate (rates are higher than normal because July is peak travel season for the hotel).

Hotel check-in time is 3 p.m. and check-out is 11 a.m. There is a baggage holding area for early and late checking. For hotel reservations or for further details, please call (800) 267-8439.
