Mission:

The Associate Board supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s movement to unite in our collective power to stop MS, restore what has been lost, and end this disease forever.

Vision:

Our vision is to make a difference through fundraising, volunteering, activism, and community support so that those affected by MS can live their best lives.

Purpose:

This group of young professionals is dedicated to creating a world free of MS by fostering awareness amongst young adults by way of their social and professional networks.

The National MS Society’s Associate Board offers members a variety of ways to get involved.  Aside from assisting with advocacy efforts and offering a place for young professionals who are directly affected by MS to seek support, the Associate Board hosts four signature fundraising events each year:  MS Summer Social, MS Slugfest, MS Pub Crawl, and MS Soiree.

  • MS Soiree:  a cocktail party and casino-night fundraiser held at Galleria Marchetti on Saturday, February 9, 2019.  More than 500 guests attend the event and enjoy casino games, music, dancing, cocktails, small bites from local restaurants, and an extensive silent auction.
  • MS Summer Social:  a cocktail party fundraiser held at The Chez on Friday, June 14, 2019.  More than 250 young professionals attend where they enjoy music, dancing, cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres, and a luxury opportunity drawing.  
  • MS Slugfest: a co-ed 16” softball tournament held at Mt Greenwood Park in early August. More than 20 teams come together for a full day of softball games and an exciting home-run derby.
  • MS Pubcrawl: 2019/2020 date and location TBD. More details coming this spring!

Associate Board members also advocate on behalf of people living with MS, serving as National Multiple Sclerosis Society ambassadors and connecting young adults who live with MS with each other and with supporters, helping them recognize that they are not alone.

Check out our calendar (coming soon!) for upcoming meetings and events.
