MANC 2020 Has been Cancelled
Martin Grams has announced that, "After much discussion and careful deliberation, we made the difficult decision to cancel the September 2020 convention. Our top priority has always been your health, safety, and well-being. With so much uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this is the only way to protect all of our annual convention attendees, vendors and speakers. Though this decision was not easy to make, we believe it is the right one.
