    The MSRT board will have a Tcon meeting to vote on purchasing additional insurance to protect the MSRT from financial theft.  This protects volunteer members that sit on the board or hold office. This policy would be in addition to our current liability insurance policy that we have when we hold MSRT events. This new policy also aids in eligibility to receive financial aid from the ASRT.

    Total annual expense of this additional policy would be $633. Our current liability insurance is approx. $500.

    This phone conference is scheduled for Friday December 19th at 8am

    Thank you to all who attended the Annual Meeting and Fall Conference this last weekend in St Cloud MN. I hope you found it to be educational and informative. Special thanks to Colleen Brady Santwire for her years of service on the executive board, and to the entire conference committee for all the time, energy and effort it takes to organize a conference.  I look forward to working with current board members and all the newly elected members and committee chairs.
    Don't hesitate to let any of the board members know if there is anything you would like to see us work on or improve. Or simply let us know of the great job we are doing!:)
