AVDA 2015 Annual Conference Draft Schedule and Speakers Announced
AVDA is pleased to announce the draft schedule and speakers for the 2015 Annual Conference to be held at the Belmond Charleston Place Hotel in Charleston SC, April 26-28, 2015. Click here for the 2015 Annual Conference Draft Schedule.

Several changes have been made to the 2015 schedule due to the city location of this year's event. The Annual Scramble Golf Tournament has been moved to Monday afternoon to allow for travel to the Wild Dunes Links Course, approximately 30 minutes from the hotel. This Tom Fazio designed course has been consistently ranked in the top twenty-five courses in the United States since its inception in 1977. The Annual Meeting and Lunch have been moved to Tuesday afternoon and the AVDA No-Tie lounge will be held at the beautiful and historic Boone Hall Plantation on Tuesday evening.

Confirmed speakers include Steve McClatchey, Lynne Lancaster, Alan Beaulieu and Steve Gilliland. Additional information about these speakers can be found below. Details about the speaker topics and presentations will be sent out later this year and will be posted on the AVDA website. The promotional brochure for the event will be mailed to members in January 2015.


AVDA ITR Advisor Newsletter
AVDA is pleased to announce that AVDA has partnered with ITR Economics to provide the monthly ITR Advisor, a 4-page snapshot of the current economy, using leading indicators to tell subscribers where the economy is headed and what actions to take now. Written in a conversational tone, not heavy economic-speak, the ITR Advisor is a simple, quick, timely, and affordable way to stay informed about the state of the economy, with useful guidance and clear action points. This is another member benefit that we are providing to our members. This email newsletter will be sent to all principals and alternates at AVDA member companies.
