Special Announcement
With the continuing threat of COVID-19 and the related government restrictions, including those on travel and gathering size for meetings, the CMSA Board of Directors has been forced to move the 2021 Hybrid Annual Conference to a complete virtual format. While we are disappointed that we can’t gather together in person, the health and safety of our members is our top priority. We are looking forward to a virtual experience like none other and hope you make plans to join us!

We’ve spent the last year seeing the number of cases and deaths increase exponentially, our schools and businesses close, and our lives being placed on hold. But I think we may be getting ready to round the corner and see some light at the end of the tunnel. The good news may not be as optimistic as we would prefer right now, but let’s take a look at some of the positive things that are beginning to happen.
Chapter Connection
The CMSA SOV Chapter continues to stay connected with members by collaborating with other chapters across the country. Please read about their exciting spring event coming up and two amazing members who recently received national honors.
