Social Activities

UMRA State Capitol vist 2018:  Everyone seemed to really enjoy both the tour and the chance to chat/get to know each other.

In September 2017, the Executive Committee approved the formation of the UMRA Activities Committee.  Its major function is to identify activities and opportunities to for gathering, beyond luncheons/workshops and involvement in UMRA governance.  Examples might include the organizing of an UMRA contingent to participate in events offered by another organization; developing new kinds of UMRA events; and stimulating the formation of additional clubs and special interest groups within UMRA.

Since its formation, the Committee has planned 6 events which have been well attended by UMRA members. The Committee is currently planning events for the remainder of the calendar year.  See the Social Events listing (upper right) for the upcoming activities.
