On February 17, 2015 The Local and MCA of San Antonio will be putting on the “Cost of an Hour of Labor Leadership Training” at Morgan’s Wonderland Event Center, 5223 David Edwards Drive, San Antonio TX. Refreshments are from 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm, the program is from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. We are honored to have Mark Rogers (past national MCAA president) as our guest speaker presenting “The Full Cost of an Hour”. I had the pleasure of hearing his presentation at the new Business Manager’s class I took in 2013. The MCA has generously donated a bunch of $100 dollar gift cards to be given away immediately following the presentation. I want to encourage everyone to attend this seminar and learn some new things and visit with fellow brother and sister members.
