Update on Coronavirus

The health and safety of MRS members, attendees, staff, and community are our top priority.  For this reason, we are canceling the 2020 MRS Spring Meeting scheduled for April 13-17, 2020, in Phoenix. 

With our volunteers, we are exploring options for rescheduling programming to an upcoming event.  We will share more information as soon as it becomes available.
