Presidents Corner

Magic of MFCP

Hello 2019! Whether we are ready or not, we are already into the last week of January. With a New Year comes many changes with Midwest Free Community Papers. First, the new format of Paperclips. We are excited to hear your thoughts on what you think of the email format.

Second, new officers. I feel very fortunate to be serving as your President for this coming year. I have a great person by my side as Trevor Slette will be serving as Vice-President for the upcoming year. As all of you know, Trevor pulled us through many changes in 2017-18. I am grateful for serving as Vice-President under Trevor and feel fortunate to have him as Vice-President this year. Thank you, Trevor for everything you have done for MFCP and being a wonderful leader!

Another large change for MFCP is the office location. Our office is located at 304 Belle Ave, Suite 3 in Mankato. Our mailing address is PO Box 4098, Mankato, MN 56002. Please make sure to update your records. If you are driving through Mankato, stop and say hello to Kelly and Vickie.

Spring conference is only FIVE weeks away. We have some new exciting things planned this year including a “pick you potion”. Watch for more details coming soon.

Over 700 contest entries were judged this weekend in Mankato. There are some wonderful entries and several great ideas! All entries will be displayed at “Magic of MFCP” in Prairie Meadows in March. A huge part of convention is browsing successful ideas from another publication.

Sometimes we get distracted in our daily work and forget how much we can benefit from getting out of the office and socializing with your peers. I have attended several state conventions and I am always impressed with the MFCP conference.

Invest in yourself. Take the time to attend the conference. Go register for conference right now! I hope to see all of you there.

The time is now to start something magical and discover the “Magic of MFCP”!
