Consider the inclusion of a back-up date (like 1st Sat in May)...most unlikely that any activation of MEMA would span two weekends. The note re lunch should be included in the body, not after your signature. ----- Original Message ----- From: J Sears To: AIG-1 Sent: Wednesday, February 25, 2009 8:30 PM Subject: [mdmars_staff] Yearly Meeting 4/25/09 General info Guys, Below is what I propose to send to the general membership later this evening if you all agree. J We have set the date for the Yearly Maryland/DC MARS meeting, It will be held on 25 April 2009 at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency. This date is contingent on not having a some type of emergency in the state that will mandate activation of MEMA. Some of the topics to be discussed are: Army MARS 500 Hour awards (yes you gotta be there Scott) Short Tour of MEMA Short slide show about MEMA MEMA MOU Non Profit status (501-c3) The new training modules (we want to hear your feed back) Army, Navy, Air Force Jointness discussion Repeater, Packet & RMS discussion If you personally know members of the other MARS services please invite them and have them contact AAM3MD/AAR3CK for more information. Further information and information on who will be coordinating (taking RSVP information) will be forth coming after our monthly staff meeting next week. Jim AAA3MD Since there are no facitlities for lunch close by we will be having sandwiches. The cost will be about $5 per person.
