The 2020 MSEA Convention will be held on October 16-17. While the convention is typically held in Ocean City, this year, due to public health concerns, the convention will be held virtually. Click here for more information on that decision. This year's convention will look different, be conducted a bit differently, and we will definitely miss being together in person. But what makes the convention so special—the common purpose that motivates us, the collective vision that we craft together, and the fun that we have—will be on full display this year as well. Please check back in the coming months for more details on this year's event.
Quarterly updates on New Business Items (NBIs) will be posted on the right-hand side of this page. Click here for highlights from the 2019 convention.
