Episode 2: Q&A from MAR Informational Meetings 2020

Due to COVID-19, MAR decided to cancel its Annual Meeting and Regional Meetings. Instead, we offered smaller informational meetings with COVID precautions. Since not everyone could attend these smaller meetings we decided to compile the most frequently asked, and most important questions. These questions were then answered by some of MAR's very own board members!
We have them separated them out by topic so that you can quickly get to the questions that are of the most interest to you.
