The MRCA is proud to announce the upcoming Annual Membership Meeting and Keynote Address in conjunction with the 2019 Conference and Expo being held in Overland Park, KS.
The Membership Meeting will feature the election of new Board Members and the Annual Passing of the Gavel Ceremony. Then we will recognize and celebrate the recipients of the prestigious James Q. McCawley Award and the Safety Awards.
Immediately following the Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation, MRCA is thrilled to announce that UFC Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Cormier, will be the Keynote Speaker.
Daniel Cormier is a UFC veteran and one of the greatest heavyweight fighters in the organization’s history. Cormier was the second fighter to ever hold belts in two weight classes simultaneously and the first to defend his title in both classes. He first joined the UFC in 2013 and has fought giants of the sport like Dan Henderson, Anderson Silva and Jon Jones. Cormier has had his greatest success against Anthony Johnson. He won the vacant light heavyweight championship against Johnson at UFC 187 and successfully defended the belt at UFC 210. Prior to joining the UFC, he had success as the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Champion and King of the Cage Heavyweight Champion. Cormier has a background in college wrestling, winning two junior college national championships at Colby Community College before becoming an All- American and NCAA runner-up at Oklahoma State. He went on to become a six-time U.S national champion and finish fourth at the 2004 Olympics in the 96 kg weight class.
The keynote address is open to all registered Attendees and Exhibitors.
