Beth NemecThere are many, many groups and associations to be a part of within the senior industry in the Twin Cities. We are very fortunate to have a community that supports our seniors in a wide variety of ways. Members of MASWA include representatives from long term care insurance to real estate and health care to housing. MASWA members provide services in and out of the home by people, equipment and technology. And each program and service provided by a MASWA member might be paid for privately or by county, state and federal programs or other insurances. There are specific diseases and diagnosis represented. Any type of housing environment that is needed can be accessed. There are diverse groups and organizations represented and served. There are resources and experts galore! My point? MASWA has a rich history and is made up of a wide variety of caring, dedicated individuals serving our community.   On behalf of the board, we thank you for being a part of making us such a dynamic organization
