Please put on agenda.
I am asking the National Officers and NEC members to consider repelling the Life memberships Dues to the original $150.00 dollars. Reason why 1. Low MPMA name recognition at this time 2. Two many age levels for Life Membership 3. No requirement for birth certificate to prove age 4. Need long term binding, commitment, and connection to members 5. Need not look to memberships as revenue source but as data base 6. Gives MPMA a faster means to build numbers. 7 Easier way to remember membership coast to join 8. It just makes sense
I am asking the National Officers and NEC members to consider Community, National, Military, and World Leaders as VIP Guests or Speakers for National Convention Men or Women.
I am asking the National Officers and NEC members to consider. By Law Change to add A section that states that if no chapter or chapters have made a formal bid in writing by the end of the National Convention. That is the duty of the National President to form a national committee to host MPMA National Convention in the city of choice by the National Convention Committee. The host city for MPMA National Convention need not have a Chapter. It will be the right of the national President to pick the Chairman, and number of MPMA members and non members to get the job done.
