A NOTE FROM MMPA PRESIDENT

Jayson Emmett

 

Hey All!

Convention time is upon us.  I think I speak for the entire board that we are pretty excited to be able to put on a convention again having missed the 2020 convention.  It's always an awesome time to be able to get together and share knowledge and B.S. with people that some of us only get to see once a year.  It has been a really tough year having to change the way that we do business and live our everyday lives in the face of the pandemic.  I’m excited most for the opportunity to be able to get back out and be able to resume life as we used to know it.  I think that there are some important things that can be taken away from the pandemic that we as people have kind of forgotten about or taken for granted.  

With that being said, we are excited to resume our convention schedule back in Kalispell MT.  Our convention dates will be the 28th thru the 31st at the Hilton Inn.  As always, we will have great seminars and be able to meet plenty of new people that can help us in our industry, as well as all of the fun and entertaining things that Jeremy and Janell have planned.  Being that we are the only convention that is happening in the northwest our hope is that people will give MMPA a chance.  I know for my family as soon as we decided to attend the first convention we were hooked.  I believe in MMPA and everything that we do, if not I would not be willing to donate the time and effort to MMPA. 

 

If you have a neighboring plant or know of a new plant that is coming on board, please invite them to try to attend.  If you know a supplier that you work with that is not a member do your best to try to get them to come.  I am looking forward to the convention this year and can’t wait to see everyone. 

Until then……

 

THANK YOU!
