The national Board of Directors and Program Council of the MFSA met in Austin Oct 29 – Nov 1. The group consisted of 30 attendees from 17 states, who were housed in 13 host homes. The meeting space at Saint John’s UMC allowed these groups to discuss plans and activities leading up to the 2016 UMC General Conference.
The SWTX Chapter’s Executive Committee served as the planning team for this event. Special thanks to Anne Mund for coordinating home stays for the attendees, Al Lindsey for arranging transportation and making certain no one got left at the airport, and Janice Curry for organizing breakfast and lunch for the leadership. Al Lindsey and Karen Hale opened their beautiful home to all of us for dinner on Thursday, and Paul and Liz Escamilla allowed us to socialize at their home after dinner on Halloween. Our out-of-town guests were truly appreciative of our radical hospitality. See photos at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/swtexasmfsa/
