What is new in 2021?

We're online! 

Due to the uncertain nature of the Covid-19 spread, MCSS will be hosting our conference virtually. Participants will receive the same excellent resources, but in an online format. One registration fee will allow attendees to choose their sessions, at the times that work for them, and participate from their homes. 

If you've never attended the MCSS conference before, here's a great opportunity to check it out and invite your colleagues!
