New Associate Board Member Position

Jen Darr, 2016-2017 MFA President, proposed after the 2016 MFA Convention for the creation of an Associate Board Member position. This position is open to any qualifying Associate MFA Member. A qualifying Associate Member is any person or shop owner who has bee approved to be a MFA Associate Member. This is a 2 year position with the Board. It is Jen’s hope that this gives Associate members more of an incentive to join the MFA. 

Upon approval by the Board for the creation of this position, Jen elected Lindsey Peterson, aifd to fulfill this position. Lindsey is now the new Associate Board Member for 2016-2018. Congrats!
