The Town Hall Meeting offers ABA member booksellers the opportunity to express opinions and share ideas with ABA Board members and staff in a less formal setting than at ABA's Annual Membership meeting, which follows. Booksellers can ask questions and make suggestions on such topics as Book Sense, sales tax issues, the Book Sense Gift Card program, ABACUS, or anything else that comes to mind. The meeting is free of charge and open to all ABA members.

Following the Town Hall Meeting is the ABA Annual Membership Meeting, which will be held from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. in Room 404 B/C. ABA's official annual meeting will provide membership with an update on the past year's activities and accomplishments and will look ahead to future association projects. Voting cards will be available outside the meeting room two hours before the meeting.

The meeting agenda is as follows: Call to Order, Report on the Election of Board Members and Officers, Report of the President, Report of the Chief Executive Officer, Old Business, and New Business.

Admission to the Annual Membership Meeting is free of charge and open to all ABA members.
