Thank you to all of you who attended this years meeting and symposium. Information from the presentations will be posted soon in the Symposium Section 


We had a very successful first order and hope you have liked what you have seen!   Now is your chance to get some new items!
All profits raised from this sale will go to the Political Action Committee for use in upcoming and future political contribution efforts. The MATA PAC is funded solely through the voluntary contributions of Maryland ATCs. Since funding is not mandatory, the leadership of the MATA PAC must continuously solicit contributions. 

All proceeds from sales will go to enhancing the warchest of our PAC and therefore are not tax deductible and are 100% voluntary. Contributions to the MATA PAC are for political purposes.

A PayPal invoice will be sent to you following the receipt of your order. 

Orders will close on Sunday July 2nd, just after Convention!. We are anticipating delivery in late July and we will work hard to get them immediately shipped out to you.
