Dear fellow MDNA Members and Premier Venders,
As we approach Thanksgiving, I am very thankful for all of you. It has been a tough couple of years for many of us. But we have remained strong and united. Our 80th Anniversary Convention this past September was a huge success and shows our vitality as an organization has not weakened due to the pandemic.
Penny and I especially enjoyed meeting and speaking to all the “Young Guns” and their significant others that were in attendance. We have much to do and to look forward to in the coming year. And I will continue my goal of getting as many members as possible to become more actively involved with their MDNA memberships.
All of our chapters are planning great chapter meetings. And on the national front, the AMEA will be putting on a Forum in March in Los Angeles. We will be hosting a Weekend with the Pros in May, in Detroit and Toledo. And finally, in September there will be the much-loved Chicago Chapter IMTS Dinner Meeting. You can always get the latest event news at MDNA.org.
As I enjoy time with my immediate family this Thanksgiving, I will also be giving thanks for my extended MDNA family.
Craig L. Ward, MDNA President
