2024 ALP Conference

Dayton, OH

Come to Dayton for the ALP Annual Conference (April 25-28, 2024), and learn many area “Best-Kept Secrets”.  They start with our conference hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott, where members will daily enjoy a Continental breakfast.

Remember when ALP Members Teena Baldrige (Hostess for the Conference) and Tom Cecil (deceased) were talking about Lincoln’s 1859 visit to Dayton, and of the Dayton Lincoln Society’s efforts to commemorate that visit with a sculpture?  Their vision resulted in a “bigger-than- life” statue of Lincoln placed next to the Old Court House.  Come to the ALP Conference in Dayton and see that statue and hear sculptor Mike Major tell about his crafting that artwork!  Major has said, “It is a humbling honor to create the Lincoln monument.  I have read more about this president than any other person.  Completing this sculpture brings deep personal pleasure to pay tribute to one that I truly honor.”

Lincolns’, remember when you said, “…let us strive to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphans?”  Come to the ALP Conference in Dayton and enjoy a tour of a Veteran’s Medical Center that those words inspired.  Our tour guide will be none other than Margaret Kruckemeyer, President of the American Veterans Heritage Commission.  Ms. Kruckemeyer has received numerous awards for her services to veterans.  From the Disabled American Veterans she received the “Outstanding Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Award.”

And you won’t want to miss Chris Burns, the Civil War historian speak about “Lincoln and Grant, The Alliance that won the Civil War.”  Chris’s passion is researching history and touring battlefields.  He has an interesting perspective on Grant’s evolving character as he worked with Lincoln, and in the years thereafter.

When Lincoln left Springfield, Illinois, in his farewell speech he said, I go “with a task before me greater than that which rested upon Washington.  Without the assistance of that Divine Being, who ever attended him, I cannot succeed.  With that assistance, I cannot fail.”  Come to Dayton and hear author Kim Villalva speak on “Lincoln, the Servant Leader.”  She will show how Lincoln the “servant in the Almighty’s hand,” led during his time.

Have you ever wanted to kick back and relax, be inspired and at the same time amused? Chuckle a few times, and sometimes be awed?   Join ALP Members at our Dayton Conference as we enjoy the Magic of Rory Rennick.  His show delights all from ages 3-103 (and beyond).  This show is different from most magic shows you have seen – it is interactive.  It promises to be a memorable program that you won’t want to miss.  Join us and be surprised!
