Maumee Bay State Park Lodge
To make reservations, call (800) 282-7275 and ask for the MCRSA room block.

MCRSA Combined Registration/Membership

As is the policy of all the regional science associations in North America, all participants in the MCRSA Annual Conference are expected to be MCRSA members. For your convenience, membership is included with the conference registration fee. Contact John Leatherman (785-532-4492) for a purchase option if you have independently paid dues.


Non-conference Hotel Surcharge


Attendees who do not register for an overnight stay at the conference venue (Maumee Bay State Park Lodge) or who book outside of the MCRSA room block will incur an additional surcharge of $150. This charge will help defray costs in the event that we do not meet the conference venue’s room-night quota. This surcharge does not apply to students or to attendees with a local business address, i.e. the Toledo area.


Paper Acceptance Withdrawal for Non-registration


Anyone who has had a paper accepted but who fails to register and pay the conference registration fee by May 1, 2017 will have their paper removed from the conference program and their presentation time slot eliminated.
