We invite you join us in New York for the 2020 MFHA Annual Meeting and festivities, beginning on Thursday evening with the Masters’ Dinner, the Annual Meeting and Friday evening's not-to-be-missed Ball.

New Masters will also benefit from a special seminar focusing on their concerns and responsibilities; Marty Wood, MFH Live Oak Hounds, will address this group. And as always, the Ball at the Pierre Grand Ballroom will be a high-energy conclusion to the business meetings. Reserve rooms now for the best rate!
