MFMC Fall Planning Session 2014

Dear Missouri Federation Members:

This is the official Call for Fall Board Session for all members, club presidents, officers, chairman and general members to come to Columbia for our Missouri Fall Planning Session.
It’s a busy time of year, as we are all getting organized to head into the fall term. But, taking the time to come to the planning session helps to clarify Federation work at both the state and local level. It’s the perfect time to meet personally those folks whom you will be getting emails and other notices from throughout this coming year. It’s a time for asking questions, clarifying things, and getting a better sense of how important and influential the National Federation, state Federation and local groups are to the musical life of America.
