MAA President's Message
I would like to thank everyone that was able to attend the 50th Annual MAA Summer Conference. This year’s conference offered many great opportunities to meet new people, expand our knowledge through great educational sessions, and recognize those individuals who strive to better our industry and organization through the awards program. My hope for everyone that attended is that we all walked away with an expanded contacts list and a renewed excitement about your own personal development.
This conference would not have been possible without the hard work of everyone that served on the Conference Committee. I would like to especially thank the Co-Chairs Beth Botke and Shila Kiander for their countless hours spent organizing and planning the conference.
Thank you to our education presenters Shila Kiander, Linda Stevenson, Sharon Frischman, Paula Jastifer, Scott Engerson and Will Gast for your time developing and presenting the educational sessions. Education is a cornerstone of the MAA and it is because of the contributions of instructors like you that keep our industry moving forward
Finally, I would also like to extend my appreciation to our many sponsors and vendors. Their generosity allows the registration fees to remain affordable and cuts attendance cost down for the local units we serve.
And if you were not able to attend the conference or still need continuing education credit, keep an eye out for information on the fall school which will be held at Tree Tops Resort.
Tony Meyaard, President
