MAATA Executive Council welcomes Dr. Jim Berry, incoming District III Secretary.


The MAATA Annual Business Meeting will be held on May 30, 2015. This meeting is of great importance as we vote on proposed Constitution and By-Laws (C&BL) changes. We have been unable to do business in DIII because the present C&BL dictate that a quorum will consist of 50% of the pre-registered members at the symposium. We would like to change this and the election dates, as well as update the documents. For more information on the importance of this action, please see the Spring 2015 MAATA Newsletter.


The District “Business” Meeting for the membership will be: 6:15pm-7:15pm on Wednesday, June 24 at the Convention Center in St. Louis.


The 2015 MAATA Scholarship recipients will be honored at the 2015 MAATA Annual Business Meeting on May 30th
in Virginia Beach.
