In 2010, the MMTA Board of Directors developed the Service Award to recognize MMTA members whose commitments to the Association go beyond the call of duty and promote our mission to provide our membership with the tools needed to meet the diverse challenges facing them by offering education, services, continuing professional development and ethical standards. We congratulate our three very deserving 2017 honorees: Paul Linn, Linda Poole, and Lorraine Jackman.
