TMA promotes Earth Day at member work sites 

The MVTMA participated in Earth Day events at Raytheon and Schneider Electric (both in Andover) last month. We enjoyed talking with the employees there about our programs and services. Congratulations to Susan Sauls of Schneider Electric. Susan won an Amazon gift card that we raffled off at the events.

Are you having a special event for your employees such as a benefits or health fair, or company picnic? The MVTMA staff would love to join you to present information about the benefits and programs we provide to your employees as a result of your company's membership.
