About Annual Meetings

Planning to participate in the next MSS Annual Meeting?

If you are not currently a member of MSS, but you plan to participate in the joint annual meeting – as a session organizer, panelist, paper presenter, round table or poster presenter – you must join MSS before you submit your abstract or proposal for consideration.

Membership is required for participation in the annual meeting.

Yes, that means you should join the organization before you submit a session proposal or abstract. [If you already submitted something, but are not yet a member – join MSS NOW.]

Being a member of MSS ensures that you will receive vital information about the annual meeting during the months preceding the meeting. Nonmembers may be removed from the program.

Join MSS online at the Membership Page.
