The MoAD Board of Directors will start rolling up our sleeves to get prepared and develop plans for the upcoming MoAD Conference 2023. We are considering Columbia, Missouri as a start to bring people together from all points in Missouri. There will be three days of workshops, meetings and socials. We are scouting locations around Columbia for hotels and conference rooms. Any idea? Let us know we will like your feedback on this matter. It may be on August 8 to 11, 2023. (tentative)
