Vendors, make 2019 the year you become an engaged MCASF Member. Click here to download our Preferred Vendor Program and application for membership. 
Here's what one MCASF Preferred Vendor had to say:
I wanted to thank you - you make it worth it for a vendor like us to return each year. I have joined other associations in the past and only were a member for a year before I realized it was a waste of money.  But it's totally worth it to be a member of the MCASF. It has helped with our relationships and put us in a better position for more business.
