From clinic sessions to Board Member Certification (CBA) classes to General Session speakers and Preconference Sessions, there was a lot of information to take in over the course of the 2016 MASB Annual Leadership Conference, Nov. 10 – 13, at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. And a lot of people to do it.

Attendance numbers were strong, with more than 700 participants taking part in classes on Friday. While the conference is over, a number of follow-up activities are still underway. Check out the following updates on handouts, photos and evaluations.

Handouts Available Online

Some of the clinic session speakers provided MASB with the materials used during their presentations; these files have been posted on the conference app. Select the session in which you are interested. If handouts were provided to us by the presenters, they are posted within the session information. As we receive more, we’ll keep updating this site so members can download any and all materials that have been made available.
