Executive Forums occur twice a year in conjunction with the MEA Board Meetings. The spring event is typically hosted in March/April in a warm destination and the fall event is typically hosted in September/October in the Midwest. Regardless of the location or if it is online, the purpose of the roundtables is to connect with and learn from your peers.
