2019 MN School Board Association (MSBA) Leadership ConferenceThe MC&MCA has successfully participated in promoting services and products of our members at the 98th Annual MSBA Leadership Conference held on January 17-18 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The convention was well attended this year, with the MC&MCA booth enjoying a lot of interesting conversation and foot traffic. Many of the MC&MCA member directory and buyers guides were given away to the interested school board members, especially to the outside of the Twin Cities school districts.
