MACA Annual Meeting: The MACA Annual Meeting occurs at the beginning of the industry’s marketing year (September – August) and as a result various company executives and key members of their sales, marketing, and regulatory staff attend the meeting. In addition, several industry trade journals and broadcast media usually cover the meeting. Normally there are 100-110 people present for the program as they are interested in the various issues and perspectives. Attached is a flyer which showcases the 2013 recipients that you may want to post or share with potential students.
