Have you ever wondered who the previous MDMLG presidents
are? Looking for the name of a speaker at one of our previous
meetings? Need to know the exact name and date of a MDMLG CE class for
your CV or AHIP application?
We are celebrating the 20-year anniversary of our MDMLG web
site this year! The site began in 1999, and most of our information
(executive board, committee rosters, meeting minutes, treasurer reports, etc.)
date back to 1999. The Nominating Committee slates and election results
go back to 1970. And the Newsletter index dates back to 1989.
Take a walk back through MDMLG history. You’ll come
across names of people that you haven’t thought about in years. And it’s
always fun to look at old photos –
