Member Survey

A survey was sent to members by email with a response window of 9/10/20 to 9/18/20.  This is a Google Form survey that will take no more than a minute or two to complete.  Members are being surveyed on the topics of membership, leadership, academy meetings and the Quickie Seminar.  MPA leadership is trying to gather information to better understand the needs and opinions of our members so decisions can be made to match members' wants and needs.  Members are strongly encouraged to take the short survey so their opinions are included in the process.  The survey will be sent by email multiple times during the response window but each member can only respond once.  Results of the survey will be presented at the Oct. 8 MPA meeting.  Members with questions about the survey can contact Dr. Marc Greenberg.


First Web-based Academy Meeting

MPA held its first online meeting on June 25, 2020 and it was a great success.  Members were treated to an educational presentation from a sponsor followed by a business meeting.  Members were able to interact and ask questions.  The meeting and those since have demonstrated well that should MPA need to have future web-based meetings because of COVID19 issues that it will be possible and beneficial to the members.  For access to the meeting, members were provided an access link and code and signing on offered options including computer, mobile phone and land line options.
