Plans for the MPA annual convention have been halted due to the public health crisis. The event was originally scheduled to take place July 9-11 in Biloxi.

"The venue for the event – the Golden Nugget Casino in Biloxi – is closed right now due to the pandemic," said Layne Bruce, MPA executive director. "It's impossible to know when the facility will reopen, and as such, impossible to plan for an event that is three months away."

Bruce said the MPA Board of Directors will determine if the event can be rescheduled or if it is should be canceled for the year. Coordination of the annual Better Newspaper Contest Editorial Division is continuing, Bruce said, and a determination will also be made on alternative means of announcing winners later this year.
