Thanks to the tireless efforts of our chartering Board of Directors and Executive Committee, the Central Gulf Coast Chapter of ASBPA will receive its charter at the upcoming ASBPA Coastal Summit in Washington, DC on March 20, 2018! For those of you attending the Summit, please be sure to attend the Tuesday evening social event where we will celebrate the chartering and other ASBPA national award winners. For your information, the Town of Dauphin Island (AL) will receive one of ASBPA’s Best Restored Beach awards, and Senator Garret Graves (LA) will receive the “Friend of the Coast” award.
