Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee Conference

EMAC 2013 Collage

Help celebrate a special year for EMAC

Please join us in celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee at our annual conference on December 5 and 6.

The theme of this year’s conference, at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in Norwood, is “Standing on a Great Foundation.” The keynote address will be presented by former MTA President Anne Wass.  

The conference is open to all MTA members.

This year’s special honoree is Louise Gaskins, who was honored as a Friend of Education at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Delegates for her decades of service to the MTA.

Gaskins was instrumental in establishing MTA’s Minority Affairs Committee — the forerunner of EMAC — as well as the Human and Civil Rights Council and MTA’s minority involvement plan. Over the years, Gaskins became a leading spokesperson for minority affairs at the MTA, and she is still active today.

So mark your calendar and check back for registration information.

This will be a memorable 35th anniversary celebration.
