Pictures from the Annual Meeting, pizza party and jam are up on the website and here’s a little video of the fun jam.
Our President, Dallas, led a great meeting. We had a lot of input from attendees and had several new members step up to volunteer to serve the association. Brian Herbal is leaving his position on the Board. Ted Lowe has moved back East to help his folks and so had to step down too. Thank you Brian and Ted for your time and help with MRBA these past few years. Greg Boyd and Ken Benson were voted into these 2 Board positions. The rest of the Officers stayed the same.
