Poster Session Abstracts are Still Open!

July 8, 2019 in Current Update

Join us by participating in the annual MESC Poster Session networking event on Tuesday evening (August 20), held in the Exhibit Hall.

Attendees from State government agencies are invited to submit posters individually or as teams to highlight a relevant project that they have initiated or completed within their State. The format of the Poster Session is designed for states to present a graphic display of their project on a 4’x8′ poster board. Presenters participate in engaging their colleagues from across the country in an active discussion about their project during this fun and exciting networking event.

Team poster submissions may include partners from the vendor community, universities, or other nonprofit organizations. Vendors may not submit posters individually but may participate as part of a State team.

The MESC will provide reimbursement (e.g., registration and travel expenses) for one State employee (per state) who presents their State poster.

State Staff Travel Reimbursement Programs

June 18, 2019 in Current Update

The MESC Organizers want to decrease the obstacles States may face in sending employees to the Conference.  We are also interested in broadening State exposure to the information presented at the Conference and have developed the three opportunities outlined below to assist State’s with travel expenses.

State Decision Makers
Through this program, we are committed to reimbursing the travel expenses and registration fee for one State employee per State.  Preference will be given to State Personnel who have never attended the MESC as well as for State Personnel whose responsibilities are broader then the MMIS, for example a State Chief Information Officer, Medicaid Director, or other key decision maker.
Poster Session Presenters
One State staff person per State who submits a Poster Session abstract and participates in the Thursday evening session is eligible for participation in this program. The MESC Organizers provide reimbursement for travel costs to the MESC, hotel and registration fees.

HI-TECH 90/10 Funding
States with eligible HI-TECH funding are eligible to submit a request for the 10% State Share of the registration and travel costs to participate in the MESC up to a maximum amount of $1,000 per State. This opportunity provides for registration, travel and hotel.

Note: Individuals selected to participate in any of the above programs are expected to participate in the conference beginning Monday morning through the closing session on Thursday. If you can only attend for a portion of the conference please do not apply.
