Important update: MEDA Convention 2021 moves virtual

Due to the rising case numbers of the COVID-19 Delta variant in North America and throughout the rest of the world, out of caution, we are moving this year’s Annual Convention online again.

While we are disappointed to not be able to greet you in person in Atlanta, we are also thankful for the opportunity to shift to a virtual event to connect with our peers, supporters, donors, and staff from around the globe. We are also thankful for the on-going support of our donors, volunteers, and staff who continue to engage in MEDA’s mission of creating business solutions to poverty.

This year’s convention lineup is exciting: with dynamic and engaging plenary speakers and fantastic seminar presenters, you won’t want to miss this virtual event!

Join us, November 5 & 6, for MEDA Convention 2021: Rising Together.

It’s time to not only think about building back stronger but more sustainably, together.
