District President Spring Update

MAATA Members,

To start this letter, I would like to thank everyone involved with the MAATA Annual Meeting & Symposium.  It was an amazing, record breaking meeting!  I would specifically like to thank Brian Hughes and his Committee.  The amount of time and dedication it takes to prepare for and deliver an educational convention of this size and quality is truly outstanding.

I would also like to thank you, the membership, for setting the all time attendance record for the MAATA spring meeting!  It is just another example of how involved the entire DV membership is.  I also want to report on the district’s participation in fundraising for NATA-PAC.


South Dakota                          $ 75.00

Kansas                                     $ 76.00

North Dakota                          $150.61

Iowa                                        $170.00

Missouri                                  $250.11

Oklahoma                                $260.00

Nebraska                                 $266.71

The grand total raised by MAATA was $1248.43!!!!  That is truly an Amazing number!!  This speaks volumes about the great members of DV!  Let’s keep it rolling MAATA.

I wanted to remind you all that we have a Secretary election this spring.  I would like to propose a goal of 75% of membership voting in this election!  Keep an eye out for the announcement and you can check out the candidates on the MAATA in the eNews!

I hope you all have great spring and we’ll see many of you this summer at the NATA convention in St. Louis.  Don’t forget the many opportunities to volunteer at the Convention!
