This year’s ACRA Conference was held at the Auburn Convention Center January 21-23. About 100 reporters attended from around the state. Seminars ranged from learning new “Briefs on the Fly” (Chuck Cady) and “Medical Terminology” (Dr. Elliot Carter) to “Techniques to Enhance Mental Abilities and Stress Control” (Dr. Clinton W. Smith) and the “Evil Vampire Zombie Lawyer from Hell” (Maxine Bursky). Social events included a reception honoring ACRA past presidents and the 2016 ACRA President’s Party. At the Annual Business meeting held Saturday morning, our own Debbie Isbell was accepted as the new District IV representative.
