MERA Names Vogel Director, Moves HQ
The Mobile Enhancement Retailers Association (MERA) has elected its current president, Barry Vogel, as executive director. MERA also said it is moving its offices to Oswego, N.Y., in an effort to consolidate operations and maximize efficiency.
“MERA is enhancing member benefits and seeking out new and innovative ways to bring skills enhancement and education opportunities to our membership. Doing all of this in the face of a difficult economy and a restructuring industry requires flexibility and the ability to act quickly.” Vogel said. “To support MERA’s restructuring, it was decided to bring our management activities in-house.”
The Raybourn Group, which has served as MERA’s management company, will continue to provide some accounting and consulting services to MERA.
Effective March 1, 2009, the new phone number for MERA will be 315-342-3727. The mailing address will be 5842 State Route104, Oswego, NY 13126. Business hours will be Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., EST.
