Past President's Message
Dear all NAfME Collegiate Members of Missouri,
It has been an honor serving as NAfME Collegiate President of Missouri this past year. Many things were a great success in making the 75th Annual MMEA In-Service Workshop/Conference the best I have ever attended. Registration went smoother than ever before, the sessions were very informative, the history room went off without a hitch and the mixer was a blast. I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you for making this process so rewarding. We registered 438 members this year of which 67 were either new or renewed memberships. Simply amazing!. Below are some introductions to your new 2013 NAfME-C of Missouri Executive Board. Thank you again and I hope you continue to support your new officers and all of their great ideas for the future!
