Attendees who sign up to receive these notifications will receive them via text message to a cell phone number they provide to MASL, at rates per their current phone service plan.
MASL will not contact attendees via text using this information outside of the 2013 Spring Conference. Only individuals who sign up to receive conference text messages will receive text messages.
If you are interested in signing up to receive conference notification texts, please provide your information when you register for the conference.

Attendees wishing to purchase reserved seats for meals at the 2013 Spring Conference may purchase them on-site at conference. Please note that if you registered for conference at the full rate or have purchased meal tickets, you are guaranteed a meal and will have a seat in the dining room. Reserved seating is for individuals who would prefer a specific seat at a meal event that would allow them to dine next to colleagues, etc.
Attendees will be able to purchase a reserved seat for any meal for $5 per seat per meal. Unfortunately reserved seats cannot be purchased in advance of conference, only on-site at conference. Individuals are able to purchase multiple seats at tables for meals.
For example: if you and 3 colleagues decide to sit together for the Monday lunch and Monday dinner meals, one colleague could purchase seats at these 2 meals for all of you. The cost would be $40: 4 seats at 2 different meals, at a cost of $5 per seat per meal.
Payment for seats may be made in cash or check; sorry, no credit card payments can be accepted for reserved seating.
