Canceled: ADLA August Annual Meeting at Ross Bridge Resort

Canceled: ADLA AugustCanceled: ADLA August Annual Meeting at Ross Bridge Resort

Message from Andy Rutens, ADLA Annual Meeting CLE Program Chair: 

ADLA Members:

Due to ongoing issues related to the pandemic, ADLA is canceling its summer meeting, which had been rescheduled for August 14th and 15th, 2020 at the Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa in Hoover, Alabama. Based upon the Amended Statewide Order concerning COVID precautions, we have determined that having an in-person seminar in August presents an unnecessary risk to our judges, speakers, exhibitors, and attendees. It was our belief that based upon limitations, we would not be able to put on the type of seminar and conference that our attendees are accustomed to.

Since this is the second time we have had to cancel the seminar, we will not be attempting to reschedule an in-person seminar this calendar year. However, we are actively pursuing the possibility of providing a virtual Annual Meeting seminar for our members sometime in September or October of this year. Details on the August Annual Membership Business Meeting and board elections are still being finalized; we will update you as soon as we have more information.

If you already have a hotel reservation at the Ross Bridge Resort and Spa, the hotel will automatically cancel your reservation because it was booked within the meeting room block.  If you wish to travel still and stay at Ross Bridge over the same weekend, please contact Melissa Chambers at to make a new reservation and arrange the same group rate discount for your stay.

Thank you again for your ongoing support during this difficult time. We hope that you are safe, healthy, and taking the necessary precautions as we all navigate through these challenging times.  Stay tuned for details of our upcoming virtual conference this fall.   If you have questions, feel free to contact ADLA Executive Director Jennifer Hayes at 334-395-4455.

The ADLA August Annual meeting has been canceled.

This year, in committing to ADLA, 900 members strengthened the foundation of the association and became part of the groundwork for our future members to continue advancing and innovating the practice of civil defense litigation. Join or Renew
