Hello 2020 and Happy February! I am truly honored to serve as SLAA President this year. Our board members and I can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the rest of the year!

Thank you for attending our January Meeting, where we had a star-studded line-up of great speakers telling us all about the exciting developments going on in downtown St. Louis. Our speakers included: Steve Smith with the newest updates on the City Foundry; Catherine Martin with Missouri Botanical Garden showing us the expansion and renderings of the exciting project; Todd Hotaling with Lodging Hospitality Management who shared updates of the St. Louis Aquarium now that the project is complete and operating; and David Messner who shared what Laclede’s Landing is about to endure!

Many thanks to these speakers for their time and providing such valuable information. I would also like to thank our friends at 612North Events + Catering for providing a stunning event space for the first SLAA meeting of the year!

We were also able to introduce our 2020 Board of Directors, and recognize Jessica Utterback with an award for doing such an amazing job as the 2019 SLAA President!

The March meeting is March 18th at Old Herald Brewery & Distillery in Collinsville, IL. Click here for more information! We don’t want you to miss this one, it’s going to be great!

I want to truly thank each and every one of you for your time and devotion to this association – we couldn’t do “SLAA” without our members! If you ever have questions, please feel free to contact me.

2020 President
