Dear MPAers,

I'm sure you have seen the notice about the "New" Wings program that will be introduced at Saint Louis University, on April 28th. Since the MPA has been such a strong supporter of the Wings program, I wanted to ensure that the organization is invited to the grand opening!

Originally, Jim Pyles was just going to come out to give the Central Region FAASTeam Managers training, but I asked that he do a seminar, open to all, so that we can get questions from the folks who really use the program. He agreed that was a good idea, so we'll all find out how it works together.

For details on this special program click here. All the details are available there. On-line training will be available on the website in June, when the program goes nation-wide.
