AFLA's 23rd Annual Meeting and Conference, held at the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta from April 25-27, 1991 was the best-ever attended gathering of the association with more than 250 registered attendees, and centered around the theme of qualifying vendors, keeping control mechanisms running smoothly, and verifying the services received.
