Please welcome Mr. James Fackler as the new MADA executive vice president, effective March 1, 2024. James has been the MADA Director of Regulatory Compliance for 18 months and worked in various leadership positions with the Secretary of State’s office prior to that. James has been preparing to take on this new role, following Terry Burns’ 2023 notification to the MADA board that he would be stepping down.

We encourage all members to extend a warm welcome to James, contact him with any questions and take this opportunity to share your thoughts and suggestions for the association. Your insights will be instrumental in continuing to shape the direction of our association.
