As a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, MTTA has been producing the Master/slave Conference since 2004.  So, it’s extremely difficult and painful for us to cancel our event this year.  However, the uncertainty and risks surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have forced us to act proactively and cancel our event.

Following the recommendation of the Executive Committee of the Master/slave Conference, the MTTA Board of Directors has approved the cancellation of MsC 2020.  This action is being undertaken to:

  • fulfill our ethical responsibility to protect the health of our attendees, volunteers, presenters, speakers and staff
  • to heed the call from federal, state, and local authorities
  • to follow the CDC recommendations
  • to protect our attendees and presenters from making plans and arrangements that are sometimes costly to cancel

The Executive Committee will start working immediately on plans for MsC 2021 at our new venue, the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center.  The theme for MsC 2021 will be “Celebrating our Diversity.”  We will do our very best to keep the speakers, judges and presenters who had been booked for 2020.

We look forward to seeing our entire MsC family attending our event in 2021!
