41st Annual Convention


41st Annual Convention to be held in Huntsville, Alabama

Alabama’s “Rocket City” - Huntsville - will host the 41st Annual ARSEA/APEAL Convention on September 28th and 29th as members from across the state gather to discuss important issues, listen to news-making public figures, and hear about our plans to improve retirement benefits.

Informative meetings and sessions combine with entertaining events like our Friends of Retirees and Employees Political Action Committee (FOREPAC) Dinner to provide attendees with a convention that is both fun and educational.  It also provides you with the opportunity to interact with and talk directly to some of Alabama’s most powerful elected officials, lawmakers, and other notable personalities.


We have secured a rate of $125 plus tax per night for accommodations at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Spa in downtown Huntsville.  Parking will be $6 per day for those staying at the hotel in our room block.  Please make your reservation for September 28th no later than September 3rd by calling (256) 539-7373 press 1 and ask to book a reservation under the Alabama Retired State Employees’ Association group rate.  For online reservation instructions please contact sphillips@arsea.org.

Join us for a reception and dinner where you will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with state constitutional officers, legislators, city and county officials and representatives from RSA, SEIB, AMBA and other benefit and service providers.  The jam-packed evening also plays host to our Annual FOREPAC Raffle drawing.

Annual Business Meeting  

Our yearly business meeting will include reports and highlights from throughout the past year, as well as a look ahead to the future and the prospects for a retiree longevity bonus check.  Our meeting will include special recognition of association leaders who are making a difference in improving the lives of state and local government employees and retirees throughout Alabama.  Winners of this year’s honors, including “Member of the Year,” will be announced. 

President’s Luncheon

A luncheon honoring President Ken Mays will conclude our events.  Our final activity will be a grand prize drawing where one lucky winner will take home a $250 cash prize.  


At each event we will hear from a prominent public figure discussing important topics of interest.  Gov. Kay Ivey, Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth, Speaker of the House Mac McCutcheon, RSA CEO Dr. David Bronner and others have been invited.
