Happy New Year from MATI
MATI would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our members a very happy 2017. Thank you for being part of our association!
2016 was another great year for MATI. We enjoyed seeing our members at several social events throughout the year. We held our board elections in the spring, and the association welcomed new directors Marina Ilari, Kristy Brown Lust, Thaís Passos and Ghada Shakir to the board.
We hosted our annual conference in September at the University Center in Chicago, drawing a number of attendees for a day of educational sessions and networking. MATI also had strong attendance at the ATA conference in San Francisco in November, with several members presenting sessions. Throughout the year, we also offered benefits such as our quarterly newsletter and a wide range of webinars open to both members and non-members.
In 2017, we look forward to continuing to offer you educational, networking and social events and resources. Plans are underway for our annual conference, and we are finalizing our webinar lineup for the year.
This spring we will hold our annual board elections. If you have been looking for an opportunity to get more involved with MATI, consider running for a position on our board!
Please stay tuned for announcements about upcoming events, webinars and elections. And if you haven’t done so already, please take the time to renew your membership for the year and make sure your directory listing at www.matiata.org is up to date.
We wish you a very happy and healthy 2017.
The MATI Board of Directors
