Annual Meeting at OakTree Mazda

BAMA held its annual meeting with a full house of attendees and welcomed the new BAMA board of directors for 2019 on Sunday, January 20.

The agenda covered exciting plans for new drives and some overnight trips to be coordinated by our event committee. New ideas were proposed for recruiting new drive leaders and providing them with planning support. Be sure to check the event calendar on the website and look for notifications on the BAMA Facebook page for scheduled events.

We want to give a big-shout out to the generous hospitality of OakTree Mazda for making their conference room available to us and for providing tasty sandwiches for lunch. Thanks to Gary and Wendy for bringing coffee and breakfast treats.
