2020 Meetings


The Board usually meets at 7:00 PM on the second Wednesday of each month, except January, at French Quarter Realty, 8011 Maple St. Please contact us if you would like to attend, as space is limited. In January, we hold our annual meeting at St. Andrews Parish Hall, 8000 blk of Zimple. We also expect to hold one or more board meetings yearly in larger venues. We will send notice of those meetings to MARI members and area residents whose email addresses we have on file. Please send us you email addresses. In January, we hold our general meeting, where officers and board members are elected.
