At this year’s Southeast Leadership Development Conference (SLDC), Republican Nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, Katie Boyd Britt, along with State Representatives Alan Baker (R-Brewton) and Chip Brown (R-Hollinger’s Island) will be speaking at the annual Advocacy Luncheon. The luncheon will take place on Thursday, September 1 from 11:45 – 1:15 PM CST. SLDC is being hosted August 31 – September 2 at The Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa in Point Clear, Alabama. Please note there is no additional cost to attend the luncheon. Registration and hotel information can be found here.
Katie Britt won the 2022 Primary Runoff Election in Alabama with 63.02% of the vote and now heads to the General Election where she is expected to perform well. Prior to running for the U.S. Senate, she served as the President and CEO of the Business Council of Alabama, working to grow Alabama jobs, strengthen the state’s business community, and stand up for small businesses. She previously served as the Chief of Staff to U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL). At the recommendation of Alabama credit unions, LSCU proudly endorsed Britt earlier this year and participated in a member communication on her behalf.
State Representative Alan Baker was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2006. He represents House District 66, which is made up of Baldwin and Escambia counties. Representative Baker serves as Vice Chairman of the powerful Rules Committee, Vice Chairman of the Education Policy Committee, and a member of the Baldwin County Legislation, Joint Transportation Committee, Permanent Joint Legislative Committee on Energy Policy and Ways and Means Education Committees. Prior to being elected, he devoted 27 years to public education where he taught history and coached football and track.
State Representative Chip Brown was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2018. He represents House District 105, which includes portions of Mobile County. Representative Brown serves on the House Insurance, Economic Development and Tourism, Urban and Rural Development, House Rules, and Mobile County Legislation committees. Prior to being elected, he served our country in the Alabama National Guard. He was deployed overseas with U.S. Central Command in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and also served as a military advisor for the NATO-International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces Afghanistan during two deployments to Afghanistan.
Neither Representative Baker nor Representative Brown will have a General Election.
This lineup of speakers will undoubtedly make for an informative and entertaining luncheon, and LSCU hopes to see you at SLDC later this month!
