MIA Business Meeting
Please join us for a business meeting wherein the Board of Trustees will present its recommendation that the Moorestown Improvement Association convert from an unincorporated association to a New Jersey Non-profit Corporation, to be followed by an application for recognition as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
