2021 MSCA Delegate Assembly

The Delegate Assembly is the policy-making authority of the MSCA.  Its policies, programs and resolutions are implemented by the Board of Directors and the Officers.  The fiscal affairs of the MSCA are conducted according to a budget approved by the Delegate Assembly, provided that the Board of Directors has the authority to transfer line items.

The Delegate Assembly meets annual at the end of April or the beginning of May.  This year’s Assembly will be held on Friday, April 23rd beginning at 4:00 p.m. virtually using Zoom and streamed live on YouTube to non-delegates who can view the meeting. The link to view the Delegate Assembly Live Stream is here.
