Dear Members,

As the AZ ALEC public sector chairman,  I'd like to invite you to join me in NEW ORLEANS at ALEC's annual meeting from AUGUST 3RD-6TH.  READ ALL DETAILS BELOW:

1.  ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) is  a nonpartisan membership association for conservative state lawmakers who share a common belief in limited government, free markets, federalism, and individual liberty.

2.  If you are an ALEC member, your airfare, hotel, ALEC registration, baggage, travel to/from the airport to the hotel, and airport parking will be reimbursed through an ALEC scholarship up to $1,900.00 per legislator.
You may share rooms if you so is up to you. 

3.  I have attached a list of current ALEC members with their expiration dates.  IF your membership expired Dec. 2010, you NEED to renew your membership to attend the meeting.  IF you are not listed as a member, you NEED to JOIN to attend the meeting.  Go to  The price is $100 for 2 years.  The membership fee is NOT reimbursed.

4.  I have attached the Task Force member list.  If you are a primary task force member,  you can vote on model legislation during your task force meeting.   Alternate task force members will be able to vote if the primary task force member does not attend.  All task force members should attend their task force. Task Force meeting dates and times are listed under the annual meeting AGENDA at
CONTACT my assistant, Patty Wisner, and let her know if you are attending at  602-926-5413 or

5.  To REGISTER for the meeting and hotel go to:
I suggest you do so soon to make sure there is room in the hotel.  If you use the ALEC hotel you will be reimbursed $100 off your registration fee.  4 NIGHTS at the hotel will be covered.  Check in Aug. 2nd. Check out Aug. 6th.  ALEC meetings start Aug. 3rd. Hotel check in time is 3pm and check out time is noon.

6.  Make your own flight arrangements.

7.  You need to SAVE and SUBMIT copies of all receipts and turn them into my assistant, Patty Wisner, AFTER the trip.  Reimbursement usually takes 2-3 weeks to process AFTER the trip and AFTER you turn in the reimbursement form and receipts.  I have attached the reimbursement form.

8.  CONTACT my assistant, Patty Wisner, at 602-926-5413 or
to let her know IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND.  I need an idea of how many legislators will be attending in order to make sure we have enough scholarship funds.
