EUFAULA, Ala. (AP) -- The Southeastern Outdoor Press Association has selected Lakepoint State Park in Eufaula for its 2015 midyear board meeting and fall conference.
State tourism officials say Alabama's bid was chosen from among 14 during the association's 2013 meeting in Lake Charles, La. The president of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association, Thomas Harris, says it will be a great opportunity for Alabama and especially the Black Belt region to show what they have to offer in outdoor recreation.
State tourism Director Lee Sentell says the annual conference always creates regional and national publicity for a state.
The conference is set for Oct. 14-17, 2015.
