MASI’s 23rd Annual Conference
August 24-27, 2021
The Beau Rivage Biloxi

MASI CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

Given the uncertainties many of our members and friends are facing due to the challenges of COVID-19, MASI has decided to cancel its 2020 Annual Conference and begin turning our attention to planning and hosting a Stellar Event, MASI NIGHT FEVER, in 2021!

MASI continues to hold credits for those who previously paid for the Spring Conference and Spring Golf Tournament which were previously cancelled in March. We will gladly offer refunds to anyone who requests one. We will also be happy to apply these credits to membership dues or a future event.

Thank you for your continued support of MASI during these challenging times. We hope you and your loved ones are doing well and staying safe – and we look forward to the time we can all be together again soon!



MASI’S 2020 SPRING CONFERENCE

POSTPONED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.

SPRING CONFERENCE POSTPONEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Given the rapidly changing information concerning COVID-19 and after communication with state leaders and health professionals, MASI has decided that we must postpone our 2020 Spring Conference, scheduled for Tuesday, March 24.

We are hoping to reschedule as soon as possible. Over the next few weeks we will be monitoring the situation closely and will remain in communication with state officials and others in our industry to decide on a future date.

Once a date is determined, we will transfer all registrations and sponsorships.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we hope to announce a new date for our 2020 Spring Conference very soon.

If you made a hotel reservation, please remember to cancel. The phone number for the Embassy Suites is 601-607-7112.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you for your support of MASI, and thank you for your patience with us as we deal with this unfortunate event.
