From MBS President

The MBS Executive Committee is hard at work organizing the 2018 schedule. We hope to be able to bring in presenters that people will find interesting as well as an artist or two. We will also be working on the details for the 2020 Mid-America Bonsai Alliance conference. Watch for more details as we near the date.
