MABA—Off and Running

Welcome to the first of MABA’s new monthly newsletters. We’ve had a busy first couple of months in getting the new board situated and gathering feedback from the membership on MABA’s programs and services.

Your voices have been heard. We received more than 120 responses to the membership survey that we distributed in early April. As the weeks and months unfold and we continue to analyze the data, we will be sharing the results with you and how we plan to act on them.

This newsletter is a direct reflection of those survey results. More than 90% of you responded that you would like to see a monthly newsletter from MABA, with interviews, contest write ups and calendar updates. The board has undertaken this initiative to keep you better informed on the reason we’re all apart of this family–barbecue.

On behalf of the Board, please enjoy this first edition! If you have an interest in contributing to the newsletter, please contact Brian Walrath at

Smoke it up!
