Events & Conferences

Due to the social distancing to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the CoronaVirus, MASC is making alternative virtual plans for events in the immediate present.  Future events from MASC will be handled on a case by case basis.  At this point, MASC will not be participating in the Region 2 Conference (canceled)  and the National Conference as these are out-of-state and the majority of our Maryland school districts have restricted out-of-state travel.  

Thank you for your understanding as the health and warfare of our students and advisors is most important.
