The MVVMA will no longer host a Fall Annual Meeting – their annual meeting will now be held in the spring (beginning March 2-3, 2005).
The change in calendar was made by MVVMA in order to accommodate the decision by ISVMA to change its Annual Convention schedule to November (starting November 4-6, 2005).
