Mid Atlantic held its 2019 National Partner Conference in Mexico

Mid Atlantic held its 2019 National Partner Conference at the glorious JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort and Spa in Mexico. The setting helped to generate a relaxed vibe throughout the week with glorious food, fishing, a volleyball competition as well as multiple pools to enjoy! Despite these distractions, sessions were well attended and feedback was strong.

The three-day event took place May 14 – May 16 and included many impressive speakers, most notably a live-feed discussion by Dr. Alan Greenspan & Dr. Charles Lieberman, Advisors Capital Management entitled “A View from the Top.” Dr. Lieberman moderated the live discussion with the former Fed Chairman discussing macro issues affecting your clients and the world.

Although we cannot have a conference in Mexico every year, it was suggested that we return to this location again in the future! As always, many thanks go out to all our terrific speakers, sponsors, and business partners for their involvement in helping us make this year’s annual conference so successful!

Helping in the Fight to Eradicate Hunger in America

Mid Atlantic employees collect 4,257 items! 

Last week, Mid Atlantic, in conjunction with loyal business partner Derek Fiorenza and his non-profit organization Fiorenza’s Food for Friends (F4), hosted its 3rd Annual Food Drive..

Staff were organized into three separate teams which enthusiastically came together to donate items such as canned tuna, canned fruit, beans, grains, pasta, and personal hygiene products.  We saw a steady flow of donations up until the last day of the challenge, which is when things really heated up!  Team members were racing out in a last minute push to win.

We are thrilled to report that Mid Atlantic employees raised a total of 4,257 items for our friends at the Oakland CHS Food Pantry. We are truly grateful to everyone involved for making the Mid Atlantic’s 3rd Annual Food Drive its most successful yet!
