Becoming a MFA board member requires a 5 year commitment to the Montana Florists Association. MFA board members are required to oversee their duties assigned to them upon being nominated into the 1st board member position. Each position is rotated annually at the end of the annual Florist's Convention held by MFA. Each board member is also tasked with a duty to help put on the annual florist's Convention each year.
NEW!Board member's registration fees for the annual Convention will be paid by the MFA, as passed at the 2012 annual Public Meeting.
