Inclement Weather Policy
In determining the operational status of MPA, the safety of the MPA staff and members takes precedence. In most situations, the MPA office will follow Howard County Government policy on inclement weather – liberal leave on the same basis. This applies to workshops held at the MPA office. Workshops held at other locations may be subject to the policies of the facility. MPA will make every effort to communicate to members in a timely fashion if a workshop will need to be cancelled or postponed due to inclement weather.
