An Important Update Regarding the MSCA Conference

June 26, 2020

A LETTER FROM THE MSCA CO-CHAIRS:

The coronavirus pandemic has had a dramatic impact on all our lives, our families, our businesses and how we live and work each day. We have all been dealing with challenges unimaginable even four months ago. As an association we have tried to keep you updated on government recommendations, safety issues, new business procedures, best practices and regulatory measures that affect your current business operations. We have presented some important webinars where you have had the opportunity to hear from other contractors and how they are addressing some of these new challenges and opportunities (https://www.mcaa.org/news/mcaa-contingency-series-webinars/). 

This week the decision was made by the MSCA Board of Managers to cancel this year’s annual educational conference in Scottsdale, AZ. Currently there are too many uncertainties regarding how our country and our businesses will look in October to present a live meeting safely and successfully. We then looked at the possibility of offering a virtual on-line event. In the end it was agreed that an on-line event could not provide the type of quality program that MSCA is known for nor could it adequately provide the networking and socialization that is one of the hallmarks of an MSCA conference. In lieu of an on-line event, where all programming is packed into a few short days requiring everyone to sit in front of their computer for a length of time (which, I’m sure you will agree, is getting very tiresome) we will be presenting a number of new focused programs over the next six – twelve months. We are currently working on the list of topics and presenters and will share that with all of you in the coming weeks. 

This virus has forced all of us to re-evaluate and re-position our businesses to meet changing demands and address new ways of doing business. Through it all, MSCA promises to continue to provide you with the quality programming you expect and deserve, and we will continue our proud tradition of being the “education” association. 

Thank you for your understanding. Looking forward to us all being together again next year in Austin, TX, October 24 – 27, 2021. 

Be safe and be well. 

Kip Bagley MSCA Co-Chair  Mike Star MSCA Co-Chair
