2015 Alabama State MOAA Convention

The first Alabama State MOAA Convention in over 20 years was held 24-26 April 2015 in Montgomery, AL.  The Convention was headquartered at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel.
The host chapter for the event was the Montgomery Area Chapter, MOAA.  They worked hard to make this a very entertaining and informative convention for members, spouses and guests alike.
Guest speakers included Todd Strange (the Mayor of Montgomery), RADM Marsh (Director, AL Department of Veteran Affairs), Pete Landrum (Military Advisor for Senator Sessions), State Senator Bill Holtzclaw, Barry Wright (MOAA HQ), Shane Ostrom (MOAA HQ) and, of course, VADM Norb Ryan (President, MOAA).  Numerous retired flag and general officers also attended.  Attendees came from not only Alabama, but also Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. 
Some pictures from the event are below.  In addition, one attendee created a link to a YouTube video of still pictures from the convention:
