FRIVOLOUS SPENDING AT ALADS - During my time as an ALADS member, I have often heard members make comments about "frivolous spending" at ALADS. As a member, I too was sometimes angered by some of the ways our money was being spent. In fact, concerns over misuse of our hard-earned money is one of the reasons I decided to become more closely involved.
