Please reserve your meal if you plan to attend. We must be able to give an accurate head-count to the Lowell Center Kitchen in order to be able to feed everyone and to keep your organization within budget. Lowell Center is not a restaurant so unexpected extra meals may not be available. (Just a heads-up.) If your plans do change - contact John Kretsch and/or Penny Pickart.

Special Session Presentation:
Speakers: Ray Klimovitz and Karl Ockert - MBAA Technical Directors
Topic: "Changing of the Guard"
PR Comment: Honestly, I cannot say exactly how this evening will play out at the moment. What I do know is that we will be bidding farewell to Ray Klimovitz, who has served as MBAA's Technical Director for the past 11 years. We will also be welcoming in Karl Ockert as the new Technical Director. It will be fun, informative and there will be beer. Please join us in celebrating Ray's retirement and Karl's installation as the Royal T.D. Tap Handle of Knowledge is passed from one hand to another - over a cold brew, of course.

7:00 pm

Dinner and Graduation Ceremony
