The ever enjoyable Meet and Greet for ALA Annual in New Orleans turned out to be very popular and well attended. We had such a concentration of NMRTers and friends that the Renaissance Pere Marquette hotel opened up a nearby ballroom with chairs to accommodate us. The hotel had a bar downstairs and small concessions nearby with complimentary water and lemonade. Our incoming President Amanda Roberts was on the scene along with other board members. "Old" and "new" new members chatted in pairs and groups while Laura Kortz snapped pictures. As the night became late, some when back to their rooms while others ventured out into the streets of the French Quarter. Let the good times roll.
