MPA depends upon the guidance and expertise of its members, you among them. It needs your help to perform its mission of serving the newspapers of Missouri, including yours.
2012 President-elect Phil Conger will make committee appointments soon to help chart the course of association activities and services.
Each committee will meet at least once during 2012, if possible. While in-person attendance at committee meetings is encouraged, you are welcome to attend by telephone if you cannot attend in person. Committee recommendations are submitted to the MPA Board of Directors for consideration.
Here are the committees and MPA affiliate organizations. Send your name(s), newspaper and email address(es) along with the committees and/or organizations you would like to help to firstname.lastname@example.org.
