We are fast approaching the end of the year. It is a time to reflect on how far we have come as an organization and to start looking forward to next year. As the year winds down, we celebrate success with the MABA Awards, Philanthropic Grants, and new board members. Thank you to all who have submitted nominations for all of these. The MABA Awards help us to focus on those that have made significant efforts to improve their businesses, MABA, and the Greater Meridian community. The Philanthropic Grants are just a small way that MABA can provide assistance to those organizations that seem to be in need of help. It allows all to realize that there are those that need help, and we can be a part of the solution. The MABA board elections are a great way to be involved in MABA, but more important, it provides new ideas, energy, and direction for the organization's future.
I am excited by the efforts of MABA and am very proud to say that I am a member of a great organization such as MABA. Thank you to all of you! You are the reason that MABA is great.
