President's Welcome 2019!
As 2019 MRA President, I am truly honored to work with the exceptional talent on our Board and further with all of you that value your role as vocational professionals. I will work hard to enhance your dedication to promoting the vocational profession and meet your expectations.
Over the next year, your MRA board will work to respond to the ever-changing needs of the field. We will run a smooth and efficient association, continue to build an inclusive environment for all vocational professionals and students, and expand our membership. We will continue to advocate for our job seekers on legislative affairs, increase our visibility in the community and provide a robust fall conference. We will continue to recognize our membership for all they bring to MRA through our membership events and other resources that enhance MRA's benefit to its members.
If you have not already done so, check out a division meeting, join a committee or attend the 2019 MRA fall conference. By taking part in MRA's incredible opportunities, we strengthen ties with our community, job seekers, profession and government.
It is because of you, our MRA members that make the difference in our state.
