MRWA Fall Conference Update

booth-01Once again, MECO had an exceptional experience a the MRWA Fall Conference for the Office Professionals and Operators at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, MO. The week was full of activities, socials, and of course, lots of networking. Our booth was busy throughout and we want to thank each and everyone who took the time to stop by and chat and maybe learn something new about MECO.

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Kick-Off Social on the patio Wednesday afternoon. Once again, we enjoyed serving a large crowd, seeing old friends and making new ones. Whoever ordered the weather, thanks!! The day was perfect and the beverages were cold. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

During the conference, we participated in MRWA’s door prize drawing and are pleased to announce the winners of those drawings:

Office Professionals: Thomasa Chapman of Jackson County PWSD #15 (fall arrangement on antique door)Operators: Jesse Howell of Thomas Hill PWSD #1 (Camo wheeled cooler)

In addition to these drawings, we tried something a bit different this year, sending out a pre-conference mailer with a ticket. All that was required was coming by the booth during exhibit hall hours to say hi and drop the ticket in the basket, you didn’t even have to be present to win! We really appreciate the response and all of the kind comments. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Again, we saw many of our friends and met many new ones.

Winners of the gift card drawings were:

Office Professionals: Janice Howard, Callaway 2 Water District

Operators: Bill Barnes, City of Silex

Congratulations to all the winners!!
