Co-sponsorship is the strongest form of cooperation, in which an MRS appointee is directly and actively involved in program development.  Co-sponsored meetings may or may not also have MRS operational or financial involvement.  Any involvement requiring expending MRS labor or finances requires the approval of the MRS Director of Meetings Activities and/or the MRS Executive Director.



MRS Endorsement is an official recommendation to MRS members, but without active MRS involvement in the programming. Generally, MRS will consider endorsement of a meeting if the topic is of high interest to a significant subset of MRS members and does not conflict with MRS policies and events. MRS maintains no financial or operational interest in such programming and assumes no liability with regard to endorsed meetings.
