Update as of April 3:

The MSA and MAS leadership are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely. At this time, we continue to plan for the M&M 2020 meeting in Milwaukee, August 2-6. We remain watchful, and mindful of everyone’s health and well-being, but also focused on delivering a highly-anticipated and important event for the M&M community.

The M&M 2020 Early Registration deadline has been pushed back to July 1, 2020 to allow for maximum planning flexibility. Because the news surrounding and effects of the pandemic are changing daily, we encourage you to wait to register and/or make travel plans until after June 1. At that time, we hope to be able to more effectively analyze the situation as it relates to summertime events and travel.
