Missouri Jewelers Association celebrates 110 years at annual Convention

MissouriAt its 2016 annual Convention the Missouri Jewelers Association (MJA) celebrated 110 years of history by inviting past presidents and directors to return to their roots and share stories of their experiences, good and/or not so good, which related to ideas acquired at an MJA convention or seminar. The past leaders included several, who are still active, and some who had served the Association in the 1980s and ‘90s as well as in the current century. Regardless of age or years of experience, they unanimously agreed that they owed much of their success as jewelers to MJA’s challenge to its members to “Listen and learn and avoid the trap of being satisfied with doing the same old comfortable thing year after year.”
