Events & Seminars

MMA offers events, seminars and conferences to manufacturers on timely topics based on recommendations from committees and member firms.

Most of the workshops feature speakers from MMA member firms who have the day-to-day experience necessary to relate to Mississippi industry. These topics include, but are not limited to, issues relating to regulations and employment as well as training for supervisors.


MMA offers three main events every year. We host a Legislative Reception in January, our Annual Convention in June, and the Environmental and Safety Conference in October. These events and conferences offer excellent opportunities to network and build relationships with your representatives and member service providers.

Pre-registration is required for all events, seminars and conferences. Registrations may be made until the day before the event. You may register online or by phone, fax, email or mail. To register online, you must sign in with your username and password, or create an account.


Confirmations will be sent to all registrants prior to the scheduled event. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact Barbara Hopkins at These confirmations ensure your registration has been received and also serve as a reminder.


Cancellations must be made 48 hours prior to the scheduled date in order to receive a full refund. Registrants who do not cancel 48 hours in advance are responsible for the full registration fee; however, all handout materials will be made available upon request.


Registrants who fail to show up for an event, seminar or conference and do not send a replacement will be responsible for the full registration fee.
