Program Topic:
2018 DMV Updates with Pat Trimmer 
 
Speaker:
PAT TRIMMER  does not prefer to be the center of attention, but her sense of mission to teach people to be the best at their jobs makes her a successful trainer. For twenty years she has done training seminars for the credit union league. Her thirty years of DMV experience ranged from typist to manager and she often represented the DMV at dealer association meetings. She was MVSC's first trainer and developed the class for sales and finance. "DMV processing has a logic to it - think how much better your life will be if you have formal structure instead of chaos."

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with those they love.

We are off and running into 2018 and the first and most important item on the Executive Board's agenda is the planning of our annual Educational Conference. We have a lot of work to do to make it the usual grand event. This year we will be heading off to Las Vegas and the South Point Hotel and Casino. We have had many requests over the years to hold the conference in Las Vegas and this year we are doing it!

This year's conference also means it will be time to vote in a new Executive Board President.
