    The SMA Education committee is currently reviewing possible venues for the first class of the Level I Balustrade Installation Course.  The initial class size will be limited in size to assure quality.  Students must be sponsored by an SMA member.  A student application form will be available soon and will be emailed to all SMA contacts within approximately two weeks.  Any interested candidates and their sponsors must submit the application form to be considered for acceptance.  The education committee will review and choose the  students for the initial Class to be held in late August.

    Thanks to all who played a role in making the 30th anniversary conference of the SMA in Santa Fe a huge success.  We incorporated a greatly enriched education program and schedule of alternate activities.  Attendance was up 62% and our number of exhibits more than doubled.   

    In the days ahead we will start planning for 2019 at the Lido Key Beach Resort in Sarasota, FL April 24-27.  The valued comments from both those that attended the Santa Fe Conference and those that did not will help us improve our meetings and events. Please watch for a short survey landing in your email later this week.
