Past Annual Meetings

41st Annual Convention was held in Huntsville, Alabama.

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

Informative meetings and sessions combined 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 provided attendees with the opportunity to interact with and talk directly to some of Alabama’s most powerful elected officials, lawmakers, and other notable personalities.  RSA Deputy Director Jo Moore, Governor Kay Ivey, and Mayor Tommy Battle of Huntsville were among our speakers.












































Because COVID-19 guidelines and protocols forced the cancellation of our 2020 convention scheduled to be held in Birmingham last September, ARSEA/APEAL convened its 40th annual meeting in Montgomery on Wednesday, April 14th as lawmakers were meeting and deliberating in the Alabama State House just across the street.

The festivities began on Tuesday night with a legislative reception attended by scores of legislators, even though a late-night session on gaming legislation was simultaneously taking place in the Senate. 

Wednesday’s meeting began with traditional reports on the various operations of ARSEA/APEAL and a discussion of the various bills and measures that our association is offering during the legislative session.

Speakers at the event included Gov. Kay Ivey, Speaker of the House Mac McCutcheon (R - Monrovia), House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels (D - Huntsville), Senate budget chair Arthur Orr (R - Decatur), Retirement Systems of Alabama CEO Dr. David Bronner, and State Employees Insurance Board CEO William Ashmore.
