MRA Celebrates 75 Years in 2024!

A message from MRA President, David Klenk:

In this milestone year, Michigan Rehabilitation Association (MRA) celebrates our 75th anniversary. According to records, MRA was the country's first state chapter back in 1949. This noteworthy milestone reflects our rich history and a testament to the enduring commitment and impact MRA has had over the decades.

MRA and its members are energized by this celebratory anniversary, and we are striving toward important goals and standards for the upcoming year. We aim to enhance engagement during the Recon conference, foster stronger connections within our organization and field, and amplify our impact for disability advocacy.

In this 75th year, the organization hopes to focus on unity, purpose, and celebration of rehabilitation professionals in the great state of Michigan. We look forward to the shared accomplishments, stronger bonds within our field, and the moments of pride as we grow on our united mission.
