    Hi all! We are thrilled to host MACNA 2017 in New Orleans! My name is Greg and I am one of the directors of Bayou Reefkeeping. I founded the club in March of 2011 along with a few others and we have been full steam ahead ever since to bring MACNA to New Orleans. We host an annual show called Fragniappe and we have enjoyed it a great deal the past three years. Next year it will be the fourth annual Fragniappe in March and MACNA at the end of August!

    MACNA 2017 Full Conference Passes are still starting at $99 for a few more days!

    Get your pass soon before the price goes up!

    Well, you saved a lot of time on the DC drive so it should balance out!

    Are you familiar with the Morial Convention Center where MACNA 2017 in New Orleans will be hosted by Bayou Reefkeeping? It has over 1 million square feet of exhibit space, covers nearly 11 blocks, and has over 3 million square feet of total space. The front of the main building is 1 kilometer long! It's an incredible facility!!!
