Message from the PresidentMike Reynolds

Just about this time every year, Sasha is pulling out her hair chasing membership renewals and diligently finalizing the Conference. Come on guys – put her out of her misery! Why wait until the last minute?


I know she stresses but the Conference is coming together great. What an impressive bunch of educational sessions – all offered by members for members. Check out the schedule here. Keep in mind we are co-located with the MBMA, some of our activities will be joint, some on our own. The exhibit hall sold out. It is bigger and fuller than ever. We have a few great prizes associated with Visiting all the Vendors, including a grand prize of a DRONE.


Exhibitor space is sold out but we have 2 main sponsorships left: Saturday Breakfast $2,000; and the Roundtable $1,000. We also have a few golf holes left for $150. If you are interested, please contact Sasha ASAP.


The MBCEA Board of Directors speaks for you. In order to do that we need to listen. Well, as I have been traveling and talking I heard some concerns about the AC478 program. Know that we are 100% committed to this game-changer for our industry but with most things, it has some growing pains. To address your concerns, the MBCEA has formally submitted modifications and improvements to the IAS for AC478. These will be reviewed at a Public Hearing on April 25th. Jackie, Keith Wentworth and I will attend to represent our agenda and your interests.


The notification of the accreditation committee meeting is available on the IAS website and can be found using this link.  The proposed revisions to AC478 can be found using this link. If you are in the process of applying for AC478 or just thinking about it, reach out to Jackie for more information. I do want to re-emphasize, we are 100% committed to this program. It will change our industry and trade for the better.


Thank you. I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!



Mike Reynolds
President, MBCEA
