PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Greetings from Steve Tewksbury,
your 2022-2023 President for MPI-Virginia.

It was wonderful to gather together at the Capital Ale House in Richmond on October 13th and to have so many there as we start back to in-person events. MPI-VA is happy to have a strong couple of months ahead for social and educational gatherings and the board will be convening for a retreat in early November to plan out the rest of the year. Please let us know if your property or venue is interested in hosting an event or in sponsorship a raffle item, special speaker or in being a part of our Annual Conference next summer. I am so thankful for each of our bard members, chapter volunteers and sponsors who partner together as we recover and seek to thrive in the years ahead.
