The MSHA Executive Board and Convention Planning Team have been hard at work organizing virtual continuing education
opportunities for you in light of canceling the 2020 MSHA Convention. We will indeed be offering virtual, recorded presentations

on what types of sessions you will be able to view.

If you did not register for the 2020 MSHA Convention at Tan-Tar-A Conference Center, you will have the opportunity to register
for these recorded sessions!
