The Annual Meeting Luncheon will be open to all attendees on Thursday, and is a good time to catch up with the MNLA Board of Directors to hear about what their plans for the future of the Association are, and to ask any of your own questions and offer suggestions. Board member elections will be held during the Annual Meeting; we encourage you to come participate in electing the leaders that will shape the future of the MNLA.
