Winter 2008 Meeting

The LOMA Society of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul held its Winter Meeting on March 4 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center.  Following a buffet dinner, Society President LuAnn Maxfield welcomed the attendees and conducted a brief business meeting.  She also recognized the contributions of past president, Paul Lindemann, and thanked him for his 15 years of dedicated service on the board.  LuAnn presented Paul with a commemorative clock on behalf of the Society.     

The evening’s keynote speaker was Roger Revak, who delivered a presentation entitled, “The Adversity Factor,” which was both thoughtful and entertaining.  Mr. Revak is a vice president and commercial credit underwriter for a regional bank, and an award-wining member of Toastmasters, who became a motivational speaker after a series of crises in his own life.  He decided to share his experiences in order to help others deal with adversity and to show how adversity can become a powerful positive force.
