In mid April, we held a Virtual Town Hall that gathered about 88 members of the MCN community to discuss the decision to take the 2020 annual conference virtual this November. MCN Board President Matt Tarr and Executive Director Eric Longo shared introductory thoughts. Conference Co-Chairs Andrea Montiel de Shuman, Andrea Ledesma, Mimosa Shah, and Meredith L. Steinfels talked about possible ideas for the conference.
The community then passed the virtual mic and asked questions about how we’ll best carryout MCN 2020. A core conversation point was around registration costs and ensuring the conference will be as accessible as possible to our community.
