The conference will be held at the Grand Casino Hinckley Convention Center April 15-16, 2021.  The theme will be “KEEP YOUR SUNNY SIDE UP!” and several of the presentations will be the same ones that were scheduled for the conference this past April.  And of course there will be sessions pertinent to current times.  Details will be sent out later this year - the Conference Committee just wanted to give you the opportunity to get this on your schedule now.

2020 MASS Annual Spring Conference: CANCELLED

Due to Governor Walz's Stay At Home order and safety concerns related to COVID-19, the 2020 MASS Conference has unfortunately been cancelled.  We will miss seeing everyone and will have a lot to talk about when we can get together again!  Stay safe, and be well!

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!
