The Conference will be held March 27-30, 2021. The conference will include:
  • Over 32 hours of continuing education
  • Networking opportunities & happy hours
  • Virtual exhibit hall
Featured Speakers Include:
  • Gary Kent
  • Jan VanSickle
  • Knud Hermansen
Registration for the conference is now open. Full program details will be available in January.

If you have not paid your MARLS membership dues – please contact Kay at kay@marls.com or 406-253-5527 to pay your dues that were due 7-1-2020 before registering for the conference. If you need to re-join MARLS or sign up for new membership please contact Kay also. Any questions please call Kay at anytime.

The exhibitor/sponsor prospectus with the contract will be coming soon. In the meantime, here is some general information regarding the virtual exhibit hall experience.
For each exhibitor, we will create an interactive virtual experience. Each exhibitor will receive a beautifully designed virtual booth, that will feature the company information that you choose to provide. This can include, at your discretion:
  • Company logo & banner
  • Product photos
  • Downloadable documents
  • Videos
Based on the information you provide, your virtual booth will be created. Each exhibitor may have up to 2 representatives that can meet in private chat rooms throughout the conference with attendees.
Each sponsor will have the opportunity to offer a live demo or presentation during our virtual happy hour. The virtual happy hour will not only be live to paid conference attendees, it will also live stream across social media sites so that non-attendees can see your demo/presentation.

The MARLS Board has met and voted to join 6 other western states in a 2021 Virtual Conference March 27 – 30, 2021 as due to Covid19 we cannot hold the on-site conference in Missoula. We have an exciting venue and will have much more information coming your way in the following weeks. We are also offering on-line registration before the end of the year for those that need to register before the end of the year.

We are offering an estimated 32 or more credits for seminars. We will be holding our general membership meeting with elections of officers and Board of Directors meetings virtually that week. We will also have virtual exhibits. We may hold off with the MSF Scholarship Auction and banquet – some member’s ideas are to meet with a banquet and MSF scholarship auction after this pandemic at a central location in Montana.

You will be able to register online with this virtual conference.

Thank you everyone for your patience through this pandemic and we so appreciate your continued membership and support to be able to still host our annual conference in a new and exciting way to provide to our membership.

I will be posting to website and emailing you as soon as I received the registration packet and instructions from the 2021 virtual conference manager next week.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all,

Kay McDonald
