After 50 years as ITVA/MCA-I, this storied organization has closed its National Office. Many talented and influential media professionals throughout the Atlanta market have been members. Since its inception as the old ITVA, tens of thousands of people were brought together for fellowship, networking, professional education and inspiration to be the best in a highly competitive and ever-changing industry. MCA-I might be gone but will be fondly remembered. It may be a melancholy day for MCA-I, but that will not stop us from having some fun and reminisces with old friends and telling new stories or re-telling old ones!!
We will have bar snacks and wings for your enjoyment, as well as iced tea. There will be a “cash bar” for members desiring an adult beverage or other libations. No smoking is permitted. There is free parking at Manuel’s offers free parking and their staff can direct you to the room we have reserved for our Get-Together.
PLEASE RSVP NO LATER THAN Monday, Oct. 21, so we can get an accurate head-count for food & beverage! We hope you will make every effort to attend. It will be wonderful to see everyone again! Many Thanks to all of those that have done so much over the years in making MCA-I such a wonderful organization!
