Thank You for attending M&M 2023!

Thank you to those that attended M&M 2023 in Minneapolis! The engagement, enthusiasm, and expertise of all that participated played a significant role in making the conference a success. We hope to see you all again at M&M 2024!

Short Course Proposals for M&M 2024

Now is your chance to provide ideas and suggestions about the Short Courses offered at M&M 2024!

The MSA Education Committee is looking for a few good Short Courses!

Short Courses are presented on the Sunday of each M&M meeting and are full-day, intensive learning events: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM. Short courses at M&M require an additional registration fee to participate, so your proposal/topic should be compelling enough that attendees would want to pay extra to attend.
