MSHA Town Hall: Empowerment Series

I had the opportunity to attend all three Town Hall Meetings and each one of them was outstanding.
Kudos to the Executive Board and committee members who organized these meetings, as well as to
each presenter. Thank you for providing the MSHA membership with a positive alternative, due to the
loss of the onsite spring Convention, to earn CEUs!
