October 1, 2014 - 2014 Heads of School Luncheon at the Sheraton Tara Hotel
January 10, 2015 - 2015 MSM Annual Conference at Dean College
MSM is pleased to be able to offer a high quality conference experience for schools in the Massachusetts area. The most important part of attending the MSM Annual Conference is the valuable information you take home to your community. The ideas and strategies you learn from workshops, roundtables, speakers, and exhibitors can be implemented back home in your own school. The date for the 2015 Annual Conference is January 10, 2015. We are planning to return to Dean College for the conference again next year and are happy to have such a great space.
