2022 Annual Conference - Cancelled

Unfortunately, the decision has been made to once again cancel our annual spring conference due to the ongoing  COVID-19 pandemic.  We want to extend a huge thank you to the Conference Committee who planned this conference three years in a row and had to cancel each time.  They put a lot of work into this and never got to see the fruits of their labor.  Thank you to Pam Loidholt, Vonnie Waters, Liz Faust, Ann Doyscher-Domres and Mindy Anderson for all your hard work - it is much appreciated! 

That said, it is never too late to start planning for next year!  If you are interested in serving on the 2023 Conference Committee, please reach out to a member of the Executive Board.   

2019 Annual Conference: Don't Sell Yourself Short!

The 2019 Annual MASS Conference was a huge success!  A big thank you to Ruttger's Bay Lake Lodge for hosting the event and for opening early just for our group.  We were treated with a beautiful setting, great service, and excellent food throughout our stay!  The conference kicked off with a very productive annual meeting, in which we adopted revisions to the Bylaws and Policies & Procedures Manual.  Please check out the Executive Committee tab to find a copy of the meeting minutes as well as the updated documents. 

Over the course of the conference, we had the opportunity to listen to a great group of speakers and presenters.  Please click on the bios below to visit their respective websites for more information, as well as some of the power point presentations.  We also heard from our wonderful sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible, and you are encouraged to click on their logos below to learn more about what they have to offer.

We also had lots of opportunities to network, one of the most valuable aspects of the conference, and of course a little fun!  Thank you to the committee to planning some enjoyable activities such as foot soaks and bunny yoga.  What a unique experience! 

Thank You to the 2019 MASS Conference Sponsors!
