We're back live this year, at the beautiful Hyatt Chesapeake Bay Resort & Spa, as we convene for the first time since 2019! Or, if you're not quite ready to travel you can attend virtually as well.

This years' 63rd Annual conference is scheduled with a stellar line-up of speakers and topics who will address the latest hot topics and offer insights as we all look ahead to continue navigating the unknowns of the financial and consumer marketplaces. The conference will once again feature a leadership and board track to help attendees stay laser focused on their respective areas of responsibility and expertise.

The MACUMA conference wouldn’t be complete without a golf outing. So dust off your clubs, head out to the driving range and get your swing in shape for a great afternoon of golf.

The shotgun start tees off at 12pm on Tuesday at the beautiful and picturesque River Marsh Golf Club.  Nestled among virgin hardwood forest, open fields, and native sand pockets, this course celebrates the Eastern Shore's beauty. Prepare for an epic challenge at the 18th green, bordered from tee to hole by the Choptank River.


Come experience the pampering luxury and picturesque landscape of the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina. Located on the beautiful Choptank River, the Hyatt Chesapeake is a premier AAA Four Diamond resort that encompasses more than 342 acres. 

The resort features an 18-hole championship golf course, and the acclaimed Sago Spa & Salon provides a complete range of signature Eastern Shore spa treatments.
