NEW THIS YEAR! MSAE is collecting socks to benefit Minneapolis Recreation Development, Inc. MRD Founder Allan Law spends every night from 8 pm to 11 am the next morning, driving the inner city streets of the Twin Cities in search of people to help. Making as many as 50 stops a night, he provides urgently needed food, basic necessities, and compassionate care to hundreds of people from the back of his minivan. On any given night, there are an estimated 10,000 homeless people in the Twin Cities metro area, including 3,000 children under age 17. The primary goal of MRD is to feed, and provide emergency assistance to as many of them as possible. Drop off your socks (all sizes of socks accepted; men's socks and those meant for outdoor use most in need) at the MSAE booth or during the Expo trade show and meet Allan Law from 11 am - Noon.

  • Most innovative and invigorating conference I have ever attended.
  • The Expo is hands-down, the best professional day of the year.
  • I've been an MSAE member for 20 years and this year I met three new contacts that I know I will be working with, connecting and sharing best practices in the future.
  • Want great educational content? Check. Want great connections and networking? Check. The MSAE Annual Meeting & Expo has it all!
