Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and as we busily make preparations for this very special American holiday, it's appropriate to acknowledge those who have found ways to share their blessings. Our Closing Session speaker for MCAA 2013 (March 17-21 at the JW Marriott Hill Country, San Antonio, TX) is one of those remarkable people. After serving our country as a U.S. Navy Seal (he was deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa and Southeast Asia), Greitens and two friends used their military earnings to create The Mission Continues, an organization that places post 9/11 wounded and disabled veterans with community-based non-profit establishments to help them develop their professional and educational goals. Find out more about Greitens' unconventional life and the motivations behind his giving spirit — as well as our other excellent speakers, business-building educational sessions and fabulous social events — by scanning our convention Planning Guide at www.mcaa.org/mcaa2013.
