In case you don't check your email often, please do so to get the recent notice of a significant change in MBPA. Your board is planning to partition the group from a large, monolithic one trying not quite successfully to serve 6 states and the District of Columbia into several (initially smaller) groups located more local to smaller service territories. We've set up a topic for this issue so you can discuss it with board members and the rank-and-file in our Discussion Forum
. Please avail yourself of this opportunity to engage in a productive dialogue by adding your ideas for the best approach to take to make this a successful transition.
