Who enjoyed seeing all the Brat fun at the reunion in Phoenix? As you might imagine, your ABI Board puts a lot of effort into organizing these events for the Brat community. You may not realize it, but ABI is run by Brats just like you.

The following positions are appointed by the elected officers on November 1, 2019:

Responsibilities for board positions are outlined here. Most volunteer work is done via conference call and/or by email in approximately 1-3 hours per month. The board meets in person twice per term - once at the reunion and once during the off-year. Time commitment and meeting frequency increase with the planning cycle for the biennial Brat Reunion.

ABI's Board of Director's hosted a town hall on Saturday, May 25th at the reunion hotel. Attendees were given a handout showing reunion and database facts and figures as well as Q1 2019 financials and your Board's agenda items for the remainder of this term. Meeting minutes are forthcoming after our secretary returns from vacation. In the meantime, we have updated the reunion facts and figures to reflect our final numbers for Phoenix. For your viewing pleasure... Seriously, there's some fun stuff in here!
Shukran to all who participated in our Early Registration Raffle. 54 raffle tickets were purchased totaling $270 which will be put toward hors d'oeuvres at our Friday Welcome Reception.
The winners were determined during our last reunion planning meeting by entering the name for each ticket purchased into an online random name selector, Name Picker Ninja. After a winner was selected, that entry was removed from the random name selector before we drew the next winner's name.
Congratulations to our 3 lucky winners!

Going to the Reunion next week and need to know what's where when? Well, there's an app for that! In addition to paper reunion programs available at Registration, we've made an app for your smart phones and tablets! Okay, it's really more of a web site site cul-de-sac, but you'll have all the information you need to navigate the reunion right at your fingertips.
On your smart phone or tablet, click here to load the your BrAt "app." The dropdown menu has links to everything you would typically find in a paper reunion program and then some!
Be sure to bookmark it and/or leave your browser window open for quick access during the reunion! You can also add it as a shortcut to your home screen (see how: iOS or Android), so it will feel more like a normal app. It's public, so there is no need to log in. The "app" will also be accessible as a tab on www.aramco-brats.com for the duration of the reunion and through a link on ABI's home page.
Hear ye, hear ye! The Biennial Aramco Brat elections are now underway. Please visit https://www.aramco-brats.com/vote/ and cast your ballot for President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary! You will be receiving a paper ballot in the mail as well. But why wait? Cast your votes now at https://www.aramco-brats.com/vote/
Do you prefer to vote online? Do you toss those paper ballots we send you into your recycle bin or shredder? Now you can opt out of receiving paper ballots in the mail and help us save paper and faloose!
If you are committed to voting electronically, you can opt out of receiving paper by updating the preferences in your user profile.
If you do nothing, you will continue to automatically receive a paper ballot in your mailbox whether you want it or not. We hope you will take a few minutes to help us cut down on waste and keep your organization's overhead costs low. Shukran!
Don't forget that Early Registration closes Sunday (3/31/19) at 11:59PM CDT! You must be paid in full by then to get the $95 early registration rate.
Late registration (after March 31st) and walk-ins will be $120. Reunion swag bags and contents are subject to availability for late registrants and walk-ins.
If you need more good reasons to register early, we've got 3 for you! Be sure to check out the Early Registration Raffle!
March 31, 2019 is also the last day to cancel and receive FULL refund of registration fees.
Pro tip #1: Don't wait until 11:58PM on Sunday to discover you don't remember your login credentials! We have 1 Database Director who will be getting slammed over the weekend. As amazing as she is, she cannot respond to a bunch of requests simultaneously at the last second. Give yourself (and our Database Director) a little slack!
Pro tip #2: If you have yet to become a member (create an online account) at www.aramco-brats.com, plan ahead and do that NOW! You will need to allow time for membership request approval.
