Sign Up, Please!

Happy March! Can you believe the conference is right around the corner? Registrations are pouring in for everything! Thank you for your HARD WORK! Hip, Hip, Hooray!

I am sharing in this email a few needs that we have for the conference. We especially need people to introduce speakers. This is a unique thing MRA does each year and it really personalizes the experience for the speakers. Please, please, please visit these links and consider helping out. We will need extra support with such great attendance.

Thanks to all that have signed up already!
