This will be my last article as MABA President and I am so grateful as I look back over 2016. Life seemed to be chaotic at times, business has been very good, and I feel blessed. It has been a year of getting things organized and ready for tremendous growth.
MABA has made significant progress with its strategic plan. Policies implemented, membership has increased, and business accomplished. The aspect of MABA that I am truly humbled to be a part of is the charitable efforts. As an organization we were able to give three grants to very deserving charities that can truly make a difference in our community. We were also able to help three members attend educational seminars that will ultimately help them to grow their businesses.
MABA is a networking organization of businesses, but we are also an organization with a huge heart. I have enjoyed being the President and serving on the board. There are so many people to thank, so I will just thank everyone involved in MABA. From the board to every member, you are what makes MABA great. Have a wonderful holiday season and let's make it a great 2017!
