’Tis the season

Issue January 2006

Leading up the holidays, MBA members, officers and staff had good reason to celebrate. Parties and receptions were held throughout December to mark the season, a year of accomplishments and new staff. In early December, the MBA Springfield office hosted a holiday celebration attended by staff, members and friends of the MBA, who reside in Western Massachusetts. A special holiday luncheon was held in the Boston offices on Monday, Dec. 12 to honor staff. Later that evening, the MBA welcomed staff, officers, members and other friends for a special reception in honor of its new Executive Director Marilyn Wellington.
