You’ll be in Good Company

MEDA convention brings together a diverse group of people – supporters and their families, staff, students, young professionals, pastors, clients, and experts in international economic development. What do we all have in common? We’re all passionately committed to business, faith, and alleviating poverty. Together, we’re a community “taking the leap” to challenge the status quo and to help the world’s vulnerable build sustainable and prosperous livelihoods.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn, grow, and explore all things MEDA in a beautiful southwest setting.
