An Update on MSABC Events for 2021

We are very excited to provide you with an update on MSABC’s plans for resuming in-person networking events this year. Until recently, it has been very difficult to guess when large, in-person events will be safe to be held again.

That prohibition was tightened and remains in place today, however with a vaccination program now underway MSABC is in a better position to set dates for the resumption of safe in-person events.
