We encourage all members to attend the MSA business lunch. The sit-down lunch is when prizes are awarded and the future of the MSA is discussed. Please join us for this important event.

5. Conference Program Selection:
We are asking all members to choose between a paper copy of the conference program and an electronic one in order to save paper at this year's conference. You will notice quite a few green initiatives while attending the conference. If you have a mobile device and would ONLY like to use an electronic program (web page or PDF), please let us know on your registration form. There will be FREE WIRELESS provided in all of the conference rooms & common areas. The online program will be the most up-to-date, and it will feature added content that will not be available through the print version. We will be using information from this question to determine how many programs to print on paper.
