Dear AO Members and Friends,
New Orleans is my favorite city and I'm excited that the 2018 AO Convention will be in The Big Easy this December. Our fun and fraternal convention promises to have something for everyone - from the best restaurants to local culture and shopping, and that wonderful Southern hospitality.
Our host hotel is the Renaissance Arts Warehouse District Hotel and it's located in a growing neighborhood with some of the top restaurants and museums. The hotel is situated between two popular areas: the famous French Quarter and the Uptown/Garden Districts. Both areas are accessible by walking, taxi, and sometimes a streetcar.
Our convention schedule is packed with plenty of time to socialize with friends and family plus participate in our event dinners and business meetings. Each month, I will bring you information about planning your trip to New Orleans and some of my personal recommendations.
I am your ambassador for this convention in the Crescent City so join us for some jazz music, beignets, and AO fraternalism!
