Summer Conference — Reception Hors d'oeuvres

Co-sponsor hors d'oeuvres at the Trade Show Reception held during the Summer Conference. A sign with your company's logo will be placed at the food site and you will have a listing in the official conference program.


Summer Conference — Golf Tournament Beverages

Consider providing each tournament participant a beverage as they leave the club house. It could be a bottle of water, a soda or a cold beer. Cragun's can help you with ideas. Call Mavis Zachary at 218.825.2852 to make arrangements. While MMUA does not charge you for this (you will pay Cragun's directly), we do ask you to register so we can include your company name on a sign and in the official conference program.


Summer Conference — Golf Balls for Tournament

How about providing golf balls with your logo for our golf tournament? You will be responsible to order your own golf balls and get them to Cragun's Legacy Golf Course. MMUA does not charge you for this, but we ask you to register so we can include your company name on a sign and in the official conference program. Contact Rita Kelly for number of golfers we have registered.
