MAME offers events for continuing education. These are open to the public, so invite your friends, students, and colleagues. Programs are followed by a half-hour business meeting for those who choose to stay on; masterclasses are preceded by a 20 minute business meeting. All events will be held via Zoom until further notice. A link to the Zoom meeting will be distributed prior to the program.
