MPA President’s Message

The holiday season is in full swing and I know how busy everyone is this time of year. The board of MPA has also been busy working and we have a lot of upcoming events we are planning including our annual seminar/meeting, webinars and social events in all districts. I wanted to take a few moments to update you on some important dates.

Our Election Chair, Debbie Wells, has begun sending out nomination packets for election of officers for the next fiscal year. You should be receiving them via email provided you are a voting member in good standing. The nominations are due back to her by December 28, 2018. Please take the time to review the list of eligible members and submit your nominations as early as possible. Remember you can only submit nominations for the district you are in. If you think you should have received a nomination packet and have not received it, please contact Debbie at

Also, as of January 1, 2019, all dues will come up for renewal. Our Membership Chair, Kathy Widman, recently sent out an email blast indicating how you can log into the members only section of the website to renew. Dues can be paid either by PayPal or by remitting a check to our post office box. If you have any questions regarding the dues renewal process, please contact Kathy at

Finally, please mark the date of April 5, 2019 on your calendars. MPA will be holding its annual seminar and meeting on that date at the Inn at Grand Glaize at Lake of the Ozarks. The Board is currently working on the seminar topics and speakers and hope to finalize that information in the near future.

Happy Holidays!
