As COVID-19 challenges continue to develop in our area, MSBA has created this page to bring together useful resources to help you deal with the impact, plan ahead, focus on your well-being, continue to engage in learning opportunities, and stay safe. MSBA has taken steps to address concerns about the illness by offering virtual attendance options for our upcoming meetings and CLEs, and postponing other in-person events as appropriate, as we are committed to the health and safety of our members and our staff. We will provide updates to you directly about the status of upcoming programs.
