Leaving A Positive Footprint

Please be aware that it is an NMA tradition to “leave a positive footprint” wherever we gather. At every CLT (Chapter Leadership Training) our Community & Communications Committee selects a local charity for NMA to sponsor. We then ask all of our attendees (as individuals, and as chapters) to consider making a small, financial donation to our selected charity. At the 2017 East CLT, we will be sponsoring The Downtown Rescue Mission. A non-profit organization serving the homeless living throughout northern Alabama and southern Tennessee. They serve over 67,000 nights of shelter and 245,000 meals annually! They also provide Christ-filled, enriched and compassionate services to those in desperate need.
