COVID-19 and Travel Bans

Resources on COVID-19 and Health and Safety While Traveling

The health and safety of our community remains our top priority. The MPSA continues to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Chicago and how it might influence the MPSA Conference. The MPSA remains committed to holding the conference as planned from April 16th-19th at the Chicago Palmer House Hilton. It is difficult to predict how this will continue to develop. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide frequent updates as the situation develops.
