LAS Website Project
Are you part of a Local Affiliated Society (LAS)? Your help is requested for the LAS Website Project! The scope of the project is to develop a landing page for your LAS, using your logo, color scheme and images, so that the MSA local affiliated societies' websites will have a harmonized look and feel. While participation is not mandatory, the team and MSA Council feel that this is an excellent platform for membership recruitment and retention. To learn how you can participate, please email Bev Maleeff.
