altAt MAFSI, there are few things we value more than the power of collaboration. 

And few things speak to that teamwork stronger than our partnerships with our industry allies, and our friends from the media.

In each of our own ways, we move the industry a little bit further, and make the lives of those in it a little bit better. We buck status quo, and flat-out raise the bar.

And when we work together…something magic happens.

On behalf of the 2016 Conference Planning Committee, and the MAFSI Board of Directors, we cordially invite you to be our guest at MAFSI’s 2016 Business Development Conference at the incomparable JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, Arizona January 13-16, 2016.
