MPA President’s Message

Finally – Spring is in sight!

As we begin another change in the seasons, it makes me think of nicer weather and new things beginning to grow. It also reminds me that our upcoming annual seminar is right around the corner. The board members have been hard at work to develop what will certainly be another fantastic seminar and annual meeting.

Our seminar is scheduled for April 5, 2019, at The Inn at Grand Glaize in Osage Beach, MO. We will have four sessions which will include an ethics update, a panel on legal project management, a session on police forensics, and a panel on medical marijuana. The board has secured some great speakers to present on each of the topics. In addition, we will have several business partners of MPA on hand for you to meet and learn more about their businesses and ways they may be able to assist you in your practice.

In addition to the all-day seminar on the 5th, MPA will be holding a social event the night before on April 4, 2019. We will meet in the bar area of the hotel’s restaurant from 5:00 to 7:00 pm for a meet and greet and then move on to the hotel restaurant after that for dinner. The board would love to have you join us if you can.

The annual meeting portion of the event will be held during our lunch session the day of the seminar. As President, I will give a brief overview of what MPA has accomplished so far this year and what we have planned in the near future. You will have the opportunity to meet the current board members as well as some of the new board members who will assume their board duties beginning July 1, 2019.

So, if you haven’t had the opportunity to sign up yet, I highly recommend that you check out the SEMINAR BROCHURE. Registrations can be made until March 25, 2019. The program has been approved for CLE from the Missouri Bar and attendance will also give you the required hours needed to maintain your MPA membership.

See you at the Lake in April!
