Come and check out the latest MCCA Annual Convention buzz and meet and network other newbees at the Hive. Stop by for a chance to meet and ask questions to staff members and volunteers who will help provide guidance for navigating your first MCCA Annual Convention and Tradeshow. The lounge is a great opportunity to network or take a break.
It takes amazing, inspiring people to do the work that our colleges are doing across the state of Missouri and they deserve to be honored for their vital role. This lounge is for past and present winners of MCCA's Annual Recognition and Excellence Awards to relax and connect with each other.
The Presidents & Chancellors Lounge offers college CEOs a place to connect with colleagues, check email, enjoy a refreshment, or just relax. Don’t miss the only area at the MCCA Annual Convention where you can exclusively network with your executive colleagues.
Looking to connect?
The Opening Celebration in Barney Allis Lobby of the Muehlebach Hotel is going to be an event to remember, but it can be a bit intimidating. Why not make some friends beforehand? Stop by the Hive at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday to meet other newbees, MCCA staff and volunteers, and a bunch of other new friends!
Calling all vets!
While we have put a lot of work into these new initiatives for our first timers, we still need your help as a MCCA Annual Convention veteran! The best way for you to help is simply to connect. If you see a first timer, say hello! Introduce them to some of your contacts. Sit by them at a meal. Or simply stop by the Hive. Not only will you be helping the first timers, but you'll be building your own network and quite possibly making a great new friend!
