If there is inclement weather, a decision to postpone will be made by 5:00 pm the day prior to the event. MMA encourages attendees to check the MMA website before traveling to ensure that the event schedule has not changed.

ADA Compliance:
It is our practice to conduct workshops only in ADA compliant facilities. Please notify us in advance if you have additional physical or dietary needs, so that we can assure your comfort and full participation.

Dietary Requirements:
We do our best to plan meals according to general dietary guidelines. If you have a specific dietary restriction, please call our office at least 5 business days prior to the start of the event. Please note that we are not able to accommodate onsite requests, as catering planning happens in advance of the event.

Smoke Free
Effective Sept. 1, 2015, in accordance with the provisions of the Workplace Smoking Act of 1985, smoking is prohibited anywhere within the MMA building or on MMA property. MMA maintains a smoke free campus and only hosts at smoke-free facilities.

Fragrance Free
MMA recognizes the potential hazards caused by exposure to scented products and cleaning chemicals. We ask that event participants refrain from using products that contain strong fragrances so that we can maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for all.
