From the MAPA President

Greetings MAPA Members,

Spring is upon us.  We survived another Minnesota Winter!

We're trying a little different format this year.  We're going to start a little bit later to accommodate rush hour traffic.  The plan is to shorten lunch time so that we can still get you out by 3:00pm.  Please give us feedback on it, like it or not.  We're also open to any other suggestions you may have.

I'm excited about our April Sessions.  Teepa Snow's tactics are tried and true.  Julie Reginek always has great topics with tips we can take back.  Take advantage of getting the CEU's.  MAPA is pretty economical when you think about the cost and all of the CEU's are possible per year.

Since it's Spring, hopefully the weather will cooperate.  In case of a weather related postponement, you can check this webite ( or WCCO.  Afterall, April 2nd is the MN Twin's Opener and I remember canceling an entire Twin Game weekend because of a foot of snow in April (not too long ago).

Hope to see you all in April!

MAPA President
