COVID – 19:

CAR MBS will be a hybrid event that will allow attendees to join us in person in Traverse City and will also offer a live stream to make it accessible to those who cannot be there in person. The Grand Traverse Resort successfully hosted in-person conferences during the fall of 2020. With conditions constantly evolving during the COVID-19 pandemic, the resort is working hard to have the proper sanitation protocols and policies in place to keep their staff and guests safe. We will follow all Michigan Health Department guidelines to maintain a healthy and safe event. You can learn more about the resort’s safety measures here:
