Mission Accomplished!    
First and foremost we would like to thank each and every  attendee for making our Summer Conference 2015 very successful and rewarding. Without the participation from our dedicated members it would not have been possible! The theme for this year was #MissionPossible and BMSA definitely accomplished that! This year was the perfect mix of business with a twist of fun added. The Summer Conference consisted of installing new leaders for the coming year, sunshine, beach, family, friends, golf, kayaking, and excellent industry education. Attendance this year was up 33% and exhibit space was sold out before the middle of June!
