     This is an election year for the following officers: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.  Start thinking now if you would like to take on an officer roll or if you would like to nominate someone for an officer position.  It is always good to have new views and ideas.  


There are a couple new things happening this year.  First of all, MUG is a COMMON member again.  If you have plans to attend an upcoming COMMON workshop or event, please notify me so that I can confirm with COMMON.   The officers and committee members urge you to take advantage of your MUG COMMON discount.  The workshops they offer are a great benefit in our industry.


Also, in the spirit of sustaining the group, we needed to raise the attendance fee to $25.   We have not seen an increase in the attendance fee since the early 90’s.  


If you have any questions, concerns or even suggestions on topics and venues, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.  My e-mail address is dgiambra@hitechservices.com.


Looking forward to seeing everyone again and to a successful 2018/2019 season with MUG.


David Giambra
