Dear MNSA Friends,
Happy New Year! We hope you’re enjoying your winter break and finding some time to rest, relax, & recharge.
We wanted to share an update regarding MNSA’s 70th Annual Convention, which was to be held this month. Recently, MNSA's Board of Directors collectively made the difficult decision to postpone convention until this upcoming fall; this wasn’t a decision we came to lightly and although various factors contributed to the decision, it’s our hope that this extra time to plan will ease some of the stress students & faculty alike are experiencing and also allow for the event to truly serve the needs & in the best interest of all involved.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we certainly will miss seeing everyone this winter. If you already registered for convention, you'll be receiving a full refund within the next 2-3 weeks; questions may be directed to our Treasurer, VJ Singh (email@example.com). Please re-visit our website (see “2021 Annual Convention”) and check out our social media accounts later in the spring when we plan to have more information available about the newly scheduled convention.
In the meantime though, we’re still giving out a few of the yearly Awards we’d typically present at convention - & have also included some new, special ones! Please see “Scholarships & Awards” for descriptions & an application form; the new deadline is FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH, 2021 @ 1700, and questions may be directed to our Community Health Director, Katie Boensch (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are interested in learning more about & joining MNSA before convention this fall - whether as a general member or as a Board Member, please check out our website (see “About” then “Membership” & “Getting Started”) and contact our Membership Director, Ashley Przybyl (email@example.com) with questions.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any comments, concerns, questions, or thoughts; we’re here to help & support you in anyway we can, and we’re positive that we’ll all get through this very challenging time together.
Your 2020-2021 MNSA Board
Thank you for your support & sponsorship!
