Event description

MACUMA has enjoyed many years of successful educational conferences with our valued members and partners. With that being said, after weighing the growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), it is with great care and concern for all of you, that we have made the difficult decision to postpone our MACUMA Accelerated Career Habits (MACH) seminar scheduled for April 6th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and we look forward to seeing you when the conference is rescheduled for some point later this Spring.  Please be on the lookout for informational emails and monitor the MACUMA.org website for updates.

Thank you again for being a valued MACUMA member/partner and we will see you soon.

Don DiMatteo
